Their hard-fought win was not just a testament to their prowess on the field but a heartfelt dedication to their teammate Christian Mougang Bassogog, who tragically lost his father mere hours before kickoff.

In a poignant show of solidarity, the players donned Bassogog's jersey post-match, paying homage to his late father.

Amidst this emotional backdrop, Bryan Mbuemo took to Instagram, dedicating his goal to Bassogog, stating: "Big thoughts with you Christian Bassogog for this difficult ordeal, We support you and we are with you."

Newcomers to the squad, Ben Elliott, Kevin Knoudou, Frank Magri, and Yvan Neyou, seized the moment to honor their senior teammates and the unwavering support of the fans.

The defining moments of the match came through Bryan Mbuemo's strike just before halftime, followed by substitute goals from Kevin Knoudou and Frank Magri in the 88th minute and extra time, respectively.

However, adversity struck the Lions during the game when their star goalkeeper Andre Onana suffered a muscle injury, paving the way for Fabrice Ondoa to take his place between the posts.

Currently stationed in Libya, the Indomitable Lions brace themselves for their next FIFA World Cup showdown scheduled for November 21st at 5 pm in Benghazi.
