Cameroon scored a late equaliser to rescue a point in their 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Comoros at the Stade Said Mohamed Cheikh in Mitsamiouli on Saturday.

The defending Afcon champions, who have already booked their place at next year's showpiece by virtue of being hosts, leveled matters with 10 minutes of regulation time remaining.

El Fardou Ben Mohamed fired Comoros in front in the 15th minute of the clash to send the home fans into delirium. The Serbian-based forward scored with a composed finish following a pin-point cross from Faiz Selemani.

It looked for most parts that Dutch legend Clarence Seedorf's reign as Indomitable Lions head coach would get off to the worst possible start, but Stéphane Bahoken spared his blushes.

The Angers striker found the back of the net in the 80th minute to rescue the visitors from what would've been an embarrassing defeat away to the African minnows.

Nonetheless, a well earned point for the Island hosts, who remain in third place in Group B. Cameroon continue to lead the way having edged Morocco in the opening round of fixtures.
