Cameroon must beat Mauritius in Group E of the African Cup of Nations qualifiers this weekend to avoid a humiliating elimination from next year’s tournament.
The Indomitable Lions must win the Group E game and hope the result between Senegal and DR Congo goes their way to maintain their chances of qualifying for the tournament in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
Cameroon are placed third in the group with five points behind leaders Senegal on 10 and DR Congo on seven.
This means the Indomitable Lions need a comprehensive victory to maintain hopes of clinching one of the two places for the best runners-up for the tournament to be held in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
But the former African champions will miss two key players Benjamin Moukandjo of French side Nancy and Marseille midfielder Stephane Mbia because of injuries.
Only the top team in the group is guaranteed a place at the finals in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon next year.There are also two places for the best runners-up from the 11 groups.
The Indomitable Lions’ final qualifier is in October against second-placed DR Congo.
