War NewsGambia vs Cameroon LIVE: Stream, score, TV channel, team news as AFCON quarter-final clash UNDERWAY


GAMBIA are looking to upset the odds against hosts Cameroon in the AFCON quarter-final.

The Gambians have already stunned Tunisia and beaten Guinea to get to this stage but face an even tougher test today.

However, they will take heart from the fight Comoros put up against the Indomitable Lions in the round of 16.

Playing with no goalkeeper and ten men for 85 minutes, the Comorans were only beaten 2-1 by a much fancied Cameroon side.

  • Kick-off time: 4pm
  • TV channel: Sky Sports Premier League/BBC Two
  • Free live stream: BBC iPlayer


  • Half time – Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    The first 45 minutes have flown by just like that.

    Not the score line most would have expected at this stage of the game but Gambian head coach Tom Saintfiet will be the happier of the two bosses.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    45. The Scoprions have done well to keep the hosts at bay so far but they need to start getting forward otherwise it’s only a matter of time before the deadlock is broken.

  • One minute of additional time added on!

  • Two players on his bak

    Another minute gone and another minute when Vincent Aboubakar is being doubled up on this game.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    41. Omar Colley is receiving some treatment having received a little knock to the head in a challenge with Vincent Aboubakar.

    The Gambian seems to be fine but this could just be a plot to help his nation get to half-time unscathed.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon – Gaye yellow!

    38. So after such a big save, the Gambian keeper earns himself a yellow card for time wasting this early on in the game.

    May I remind everyone that we are not even at the interval yet.

    His excuse was that he couldn’t hear due to the vuvuzela’s around the stadium but the referee was having none of it.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon – What a save!

    35. Collins Fai has been terrorising Ibou Touray and Pa Modou Jagne on the wing and he continued to do so when he skipped past both of them before swining in a delightful cross.

    For once, Vincent Aboubakar was unmarked in the box and was able to nod the ball goalwards from around six yards out but Gambian goalkeeper Baboucarr Gaye made himself big and kept it out.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon – Modou yellow!

    32. The skipper Pa Modou Jagne is lucky to only get a yellow after the foul he has just committed on Karl Toko Ekambi.

    Jagne panicked once the ball sailed over his head and he just completely took Ekambi out.

    Those have been given as a red in other games so the defender should be grateful for that.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon – Unlucky Aboubakar!

    29. That was almost an example of curse of the blogger there because a minute later, Vincent Aboubakar managed to wriggle free before getting his head on a deep cross by Collins Fai.

    However, the header just trickled wide.

  • Not lending him a cent

    Vincent Aboubakar hasn’t been able to shake off his multiple markers as the Gambian defenders surround the top goal scorer every time he is on the ball.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon – That looked in!

    28. Collins Fai had enough of the pass and move tactic so instead, the Cameroonian went for a 25-yard screamer.

    For a moment, the stadium erupted once they saw the net ripple, but the ball hit the side netting.

    That was so close to Fai grabbing his first goal for his country.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    26. The Lions are really struggling to break down Gambia who have got everyone camping outside the 18-yard-box.

    You can hear the frustration in the crowd a little.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    23. On the topic of Gambian head coach Tom Saintfiet, the Belgian has managed 22 different sides including his current tenure with Gambia.

    That is a phenomenal CV.

  • Tomas the Belgian tank engine

    Tom Saintfiet going crazy at the yellow card decision from the referee because now his defender has to walk on a tight rope for a large chunk of the game.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon – Noah Sunberg yellow card!

    19. That was harsh from the referee I must admit.

    The Gambian defender Noah Sundberg got to the ball first but because of the aftermath of the challenge, Ndabihawenimana decided to write his name in the book.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    17. Gambia seem to be happy to concede possession, sit back and hit the hosts on the counter.

    This tactic can be very dangerous especially with the amount of talent Cameroon have on the field.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon – Aboubakar chance!

    13. This time it was Fai Collins on the other wing who beat his man before firing in a cross for a Cameroonian player to attack it.

    The only difference is that it found Vincent Aboubakar who created half a yard of space for himself but the AFCON top goal scorer went for the spectacular and it went embarrassingly wide.

    That was the moment.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    11. Ekambi put in a fantastic cross but the zonal marking by the Gambians paid off because they were able to comfortably clear their lines.

    The 5x AFCON winners are beginning to grow into the game.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    10. Finally. The first dangerous move of the game.

    Karl Toko Ekambi did well to skip past his marker before delivering a cute ball into the box, but James Gomez was able to rise the highest and head it clear.

    Cameroon corner.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    7. Hold your line!

    As soon as the ball was kicked, the linesman put his flag up for Musa Barrow being in an offside position.

    The Gambian forward is eager to add to his tally of scoring two winners this tournament, but he’s not going to do it like that.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    6. Good chance for the Scorpions to swing a set-piece into the box here after Andre Anguissa’s committed foul on Yusupha Bobb.

    Can Gambia muster something up from the training ground?

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    5. Cameroonian talisman Vincent Aboubakar has barely had a sniff in these opening minutes.

    The Scorpions are doing well to double up on him because they are aware that the Lions captain is the dangerman in this gifted side.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    2. The Gambians are showing the hosts that they aren’t moved by the magnitude of this fixture as it is them who are controlling early possession here.

    However, Cameroon seem to be just feeling out their opponent and trying to not make any mistakes.

  • Gambia 0-0 Cameroon

    1. Many are predicting the Indomitable Lions to progress to the semi-finals once the dust has settled due to Cameroon having a better team on paper and Gambia being the lowest ranked nation left in the tournament at 150.

    However, the Scorpions have been labelled as the giant killers of the competition so there is every chance that we could see another shock defeat today.

  • Kick-off – Gambia vs Cameroon

    Referee Pacifique Ndabihawenimana has blown his whistle and we have lift off!

    The first quarter-finals of this season’s AFCON is under-way and due to the hosts being involved, the atmosphere is absolutely electric.
