Aboubakar on a high again

New Straits Times - - Sport -

MONASTIR: Vin­cent Aboubakar picked up where he left off some 50 days ago as he pro­pelled Cameroon to a 1-0 friendly win over Tu­nisia in their first out­ing since win­ning the African Na­tions Cup.

Aboubakar net­ted the win­ner for Cameroon in last month’s fi­nal against Egypt and re­peated the feat with a 15th minute strike in the tourist re­sort of Monastir.

He steered into the net with an out­stretched leg fol­low­ing a curl­ing free-kick from cap­tain Ben­jamin Moukandjo.

Aboubakar had an ex­cel­lent chance to score a sec­ond 10 min­utes into the sec­ond half but hit his shot wildly over the top with just the goal­keeper to beat.

Tu­nisia twice hit Cameroon’s wood­work dur­ing the game and Ali Maaloul came close with two late ef­forts for the hosts. Reuters
