[AFRICA CUP OF NATIONS] Cameroon kept its hopes alive at the Africa Cup of Nations when substitute Mohamadou Idrissou scored on a header in the 86th minute to give the Lions a 3-2 win over Zambia Sunday.

"It was a difficult game for us," Cameroon coach Paul Le Guen said. "We still need to improve in a number of areas. We got the victory we wanted and that is what is important."

Cameroon trailed early on a goal by Jacob Mulenga, but the Lions rallied on goals by veterans Geremi and Samuel Eto'o to go ahead 2-1.

Chris Katingo's penalty kick for Zambia tied the score in the 80th minute.

In Sunday's first game, Tunisia and Gabon played to a 1-1 tie, leaving Gabon in first place with four points.

Only Ivory Coast and defending champion Egypt have clinched berths in the quarterfinals.
