The  Indomitable lions of Cameroon last Saturday recorded a slim victory over the Democratic Republic of Congo  One-Nil.this victory came at a time when all eyes are focused on each move the lions make both in and out of the country.the “sit-in coach”Denis could only heave a sigh of relief seeing his side win his major outing as coach of the lions.Eric Choupo-Moting made the breakthrough after 57 minutes, converting a penalty after he had been fouled at the penalty ring of DR Congo

Goalkeeper Carlos Kameni captained the side in the absence of Samuel Eto’o, who is serving an eight-month ban from the national team.
head coach Denis Lavagne it was a good start but much still needs to be done,according to him,they need to always press from the beginning to the end
The stadium was only half full for the first competitive game since failing to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Although Cameroon had most of the possession in the first half, it was the visitors who created the best chances but Kameni denied them with two fine saves,thus chosen as man of the match.
Shortly into the second period, Choupo-Moting showed that there is life without Eto’o as he scored his second match-winner in as many competitive games.

The Germany-based footballer was the hero for the Indomitable Lions in February, when grabbing a late winner in Guinea-Bissau in a 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.the young player,21,has scored a total of eight goals for Cameroon in 15 games.he played his first official game with Cameroon against Poland but has now become a regular in the squad.
