Cameroon 0 - Democratic Republic of Congo 0

The crowd was on hand in Kinshasa to watch home side Democratic Republic of Congo take on Cameroon in a match both teams needed to win in order to keep pace with Libya in Group I.  DR Congo certainly had a good chance to get the points they needed to stay alive in the chase for Brasil 2014 seeing as Samuel Eto'o was out injured for the Indomitable Lions.  No goals were found in the opening period, however.  

Disappointingly for the crowd gathered to watch the affair, the home side were unable to break the defense of Cameroon.  Cameroon failed to score for the second match in a row, but they remain with life in the tournament since the match finishes as it began, 0-0.  The draw eliminates DR Congo and means that the match between Cameroon and Libya and September will decide Group I.

Libya 9 pts +3
Cameroon 7 pts -1
DR Congo OUT
Togo OUT
