Eto'o brace saves Cameroon
by BBC News
Striker Samuel Eto'o scored a last-minute goal to give Cameroon a 2-1 victory over Tanzania in Group One of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers on Saturday.
The Taifa Stars seemed to have earned themselves a deserved draw when Danny Mrwanda's strike made it 1-1 with 12 minutes to go.
But the Indomitable Lions showed their resilience and character by attacking the visitors' area, helping Eto'o to score at the death.
The Barcelona striker had opened the scoring in the 67th minute when he was picked out by Geremi and swivelled to blast past Ivo Mapunda.
The victory left the Indomitable Lions at the top of the table with ten points and on the verge of making sure of progress to the last phase of the qualifiers.
Tanzania maintained their third place with two points after four matches.
The Cape Verde Islands defeated Mauritius 3-1 on Sunday to keep things tight at the top of the group.
Dady scored on either side of half time and Marco Soares struck a third for the islanders in the 77th minute after Andy Sophie had pulled one back for Mauritius.
The Cape Verde Islands, with nine points, are just a point behind leaders Cameroon.
Mauritius, meanwhile, are holding down the bottom with one point.
Cameroon travel to Cape Verde in the next round of matches in September while Mauritius host Tanzania.
