MOST COMMENTED

Cameroon headed a group of four countries that qualified this weekend for next January's African Nations Cup in Ghana.

Cameroon beat Rwanda, 2-1, on Sunday for its fifth win in five games. The Indomitable Lions won without star striker Samuel Eto'o, embroiled in the dramatic finish to the Spanish league season with Barcelona. His replacement, Mohamadou Idrissou, opened the scoring in the 34th minute. Chelsea's Geremi added the second with a free kick from 30 yards three minutes into the second half.

Also through to the finals are Angola, the easy winner in Group 6, and Morocco and Tunisia, which made sure of their place with wins on Saturday.

The 12 group group winners and three second-place teams with the best records join Ghana in the finals.
