African World Cup Qualifiers Gabon Vs Cameroon

African World Cup Qualifiers Gabon Vs Cameroon Date: 20/6/2009 Gabon has been among the minnows of Africa. They have never qualified for the elite competition and never made any significant impact as far as the CAF African cup of nations is concerned. Their only significant appearance in the World cup qualifiers comes when the famously defeated the more fancied Nigeria in the World Cup Italy 1990 and prevented them from the qualification. They had the heart ache of missing out on the World Cup in Asia in 2002 after they failed to get pass the preliminary round when they were beaten by lowly Madagascar. The football result of this team is always interesting and you must navigate to have latest updates about it. Since then they have worked hard on their infra structure and are of high hopes to create history and qualify for the biggest competition in international football. They are headed by former French midfielder Alain Geiresse who has been given the task to achieve the inevitable. They have received a boost with their inspirational striker Daniel Cousin back in the lineup. There work had been cut out after they were slotted in the group regarded as the ‘group of death‘ where they come head to head against Togo, champions Morocco and Cameroon. They made a sound start after winning their away game against Morocco before hammering Togo 3-0 at home and are surprising leading the group. They look to Roguy Meye for inspiration and if Gabon is to escape the group and make this campaign a memorable one then Meye has to be at his best. Cameroon has been one of the best teams of Africa in the past 20 years. They had burst on the scene when they shocked the defending champions and favourites Diego Maradona led Argentina in their opening match of the Italy 1990 World cup. The Indomitable Lions as they are known, Cameroon has a rich history of football. They are chasing their fifth appearance in the World cup in their last six attempts. They had to face the heart ache of not making to the finals in the last edition when they missed their last minute penalty against Egypt. They have been in great form off late. The made it to the final of the CAF African Cup of Nations at Ghana 2008 where after being beaten by the defending champions Egypt in their opening fixture, they lost to the same opposition by the closest of margins of 1-0. They have a star studded line up with the likes of Barcelona Eto’o returning to the squad after an excellent season with the Catalans where he helped them achieve a famous treble. Song, their fort in front of the goal has been a sensation for his national team and has appeared for over a century of matches. They would be firm favourites to make it to South Africa 2010. The 2000 Sydney Olympics gold medalists are under German Otto Pfister, who headed the sorry campaign of Togo in the last World cup finals. The Indomitable Lions have a tough group to deal with after being paired against Gabon, Morocco and Togo and football result of these matches are interesting to watch. But they would be fancied to go through. They have a double header encounter against the early pace setters Gabon, who are in great form after two victories.
