International Friendly: African Champions Punished 4-0 By Colombian Side


Colombia was too powerful for the 2017 African champions in an international friendly as they whitewashed the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon 4-0 in Getafe, Spain.

The opening goal was scored by 2014 World Cup revelation, James who mesmerized the defense before  putting the ball at the back of the net.

Onana troubled by poor defensive mechanism put in place by Hugo Broos met another situation after an airborne kick,only the net could bear testimony of the Colombian action.

The Lions are led 2-0 at half time with 10 man squad after Ndip Tambe is red carded. Colombia which played in 2003 against Cameroon on the day Marc Vivian Foe died,would later pump more efforts in the second half to punish AFCON winners with an embarrassing 4-0 victory.

Coach Hugo Broos who kept most of his key players on the bench is expected to use this friendly match to better prepare ahead of their fist game against another American side,Chile in the 2017 Confederation Cup in Russia on June 18, 2017.
