Cameroon football teams taking part in the ongoing Caf Confederations Cup championship are set to do better in future games, following a dismal performance over the weekend.

The tournament over the weekend saw Cotonsport of Garoua losing 2- 0 to Ismaily of Egypt in the first leg of their round of 32 champions league match.

The team went behind just before the break when Baher El Mohammady’s goal put his team in a lead position.

The Egyptian striker doubled his side’s lead ten minutes into the second half to ensure the Egyptians go into the second leg game with a two-goal cushion.

Cotonsport now has a huge task to score three goals without conceding any in the second leg of the game on December 22/23 in Yaoundé.
