The win takes Cameroon one step closer to qualification for next year’s finals in Brazil

Cameroon won their last game in the group stages of the World Cup qualification stage, which ensures a place in the final round of qualification, which will involve a home and away tie against one of the other 9 teams who have got through to the play offs

Song plays 86 minutes

Cameroon’s German coach Volker Finke gave Song licence to push forward from midfield and the Barça man, freed from defensive responsibilities, shone in attack.

Cameroon dominated in front of their home crowd, with the visitors only showing any danger in the early minutes of the game and they got their reward three minutes before half time when from a corner, Chedjou scored what proved to be the only goal of the game . Song nearly doubled the lead on 64 minutes with a great shot from the edge of the box that drew an equally impressive save from the Libyan keeper and he was given a standing ovation by the crowd when he was taken off on 86 minutes
