The elimination of Cameroon from the tournament serves as a reminder that any team can be vulnerable in football, regardless of their pedigree or experience. Mimpo and his team will have to go back to the drawing board and identify areas for improvement as they look to bounce back stronger in future competitions.

In the meantime, the remaining teams will continue to battle for the championship title, with the knockout stage set to begin on December 18th. Fans can expect more thrills and spills as the tournament progresses, with exciting young talents showcasing their skills on the African stage.
