Cameroon ousted favourites Senegal to reach the African Cup of Nations with a 5-4 shootout win following a goalless quarter final on Saturday.

Both sides mustered up chances in the first 120 minutes of play, but ultimately penalty kicks were what decided the second semifinalist.

After both sides converted from the penalty spot in the opening  rounds, Sadio Mane‘s miss left the door open for Cameroon, who then took full advantage of the opportunity.

Cameroon keeper Joseph Ondoa made six saves on the day, including one in the shootout, to help give his nation a place in the next round.

The Lions became the second team to book a spot in the Semis after Burkina Faso ousted Tunisia earlier on.
