One hundred and seventy caps since it all began

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Led his men to a battling victory over Cameroon
With humid heat reflecting off the dazzling sand dune

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Skipper gifted Lions the lead by heading in his corner
Near post blunder from a cross by Achille Emana

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Old hand Hassan scored again at the other end
Long-range bouncer past Kameni the best way to amend

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A goalless second half was far from sublime
Forcing the Benguela game into extra time

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Contentious third goal dulled a lot off the shine
Yes from Ref Damon, despite the ball not crossing the line

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Lions cried out for a flash of skill from Eto’o
Instead a fatal sealing strike from Mohamed Gedo

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Shoddy intercepted back-pass from Geremi
Tucked away with ease through the legs of Kameni

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Le Guen’s men hard done by the popular opinion
Bad to worse as Chedjou sent packing late on

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Mouth watering semi with foes Algeria and Egypt
Football gets set for yet another thrilling script

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Number 7
