Cameroon Football World Cup squad has the sensation of favorites after much-fancied Nigeria went from hero to zero, roaring out to a previously pedestrian Tunisia in the second round after winning all their group stage matches.

In large part, the swarms are seen as the most likely winners thanks to talismanic striker Vincent Aboubakar, who claims a superb 6 goals in 4 matches at the tournament so far. But Aboubakar’s strike spouse Karl Toko-Ekambi has been almost as inspiring, scoring three goals in the same number of matches while playing a pivotal role by diverting defenders from Aboubakar with dangerous runs before FIFA World Cup. 

Cameroon Football World Cup team first goal against Comoros on Tuesday highlighted the asset of their partnership. The minute the Indian Ocean national team had qualified for their first-ever Africa Cup of Nations and got through to the second round. Coronavirus gears racked their squad so badly that a left-back had to go in goal as all the Comoros keepers on the squadron had come down with the virus before the Qatar World Cup.

No one probable Comoros to conquest over the in-form hosts. But for the first half-hour, the sprats seemed impossible to break down. Humiliation gestured for Cameroon. Then Aboubakar burst forward while Toko Ekambi placed himself perfectly, allowing him to tee up a pass for the Lyon striker to place into the back of the net. Cameroon never looked back after that.  To know more about FIFA World Cup Tickets click here.

This followed two difficult Toko Ekambi goals when Cameroon lit up a previously goal-shy tournament by thumping Ethiopia 4-1: Firstly, a powerful header from a cross; secondly, with a blistering run into the box, sidestepping past two defenders and slotting it past them and the goalkeeper into the bottom left corner.

However, Toko-Ekambi’s form dipped in 2019-20, warning a move back to France as Villareal loaned him out to Lyon. At that point, Memphis Depay dominated the Lyon attack. Toko-Ekambi often played an appreciated role as his wingman, just as he has with Aboubakar at the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations, using his pace to draw away defenders. Lyon was suitably impressed and signed him on a perpetual contract in June 2020. 

Toko-Ekambi was enthralled in his own right in his first season at Lyon, scoring 14 goals. When Memphis was cracked up by Barcelona a year later that the Cameroon Football World Cup striker entered the attention of the Ligue 1 club, establishing himself as Lyon’s most prolific goal scorer in the months that trailed.

Yet it is for his country that Toko-Ekambi has played superlative. He gathered little attention as Cameroon cavorted to victory in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, as teammates Aboubakar, Christian Bassogog, and Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui.

But so far Toko-Ekambi’s recitals at this year’s tournament have been the finest of his career. As the Cameroon Football World Cup team faces giant-killers Gambia in the quarter-finals with prospects driven up as fans expect them to seize the trophy on home soil the strike partnership between him and Aboubakar is their greatest strength.
