Cameroon pulled one back seven minutes to the end of the game. Olivier Ntcham put the ball on the head of Jean-Charles Castelletto, who had the easy task to score into an empty net to make it 2-1.

Cameroon mounted the pressure to equalise, but it was the Snegalise which added another goal.

Sadio Mane scored with a wonderful piece of finishing. He made a yard for himself after a well-taken pass inside the box and struck the ball into the bottom left corner.
