Hosts Cameroon has set a date with Burkina Faso in the quarter finals of the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The Indomitable Lions would face The Gambia who beat Guinea to progress to the quarter finals.

They defeated Comoros 2-1 in an eventful match that saw Comoros reduced to men, having entered the game without their regular keepers due to COVID 19 cases.

Defender Chaker Alhadhur started in goal for Comoros who were without their recognised goalkeepers for the last 16 match at the Stade Olembe in Yaoundé.

Karl Toko Ekambi gave the Indomitable Lions lead just before the half hour mark with a neat finish inside the area.

Captain Vincent Aboubakar doubled their advantage 20 minutes from time before Comoros captain Youssouf M’Changama pulled a goal back from free kick.

Comoros pulled a goal back from Youssouf M’Changama’s long range free kick to set up for a thrilling end.

Onana had earlier saved Abdallah Ali Mohamed and El Fardou Ben Mohamed to send the hosts through.
