The hosts sealed their place in the World Cup alongside Nigeria and Ivory Coast thanks to an emphatic victory in which Jean Makoun struck twice

By Chris Myson

  • Charles-Hubert Itandje

    Charles-Hubert Itandje

    Unlike the first leg, he had little to do here. Beaten by a lethal Akaichi goal but was a spectator for much of the game.
  • Aurélien Chedjou Fongang
    6
    1

    Aurélien Chedjou Fongang

    The Galatasaray defender did his job competently with much of the play taking place further up the pitch.
  • Benoit Assou-Ekotto

    2

    Benoit Assou-Ekotto

    Produced a typically mixed display. A real threat going forward but also had some suspect moments and almost conceded a penalty after the break.
  • N. N'Koulou
    5
    2

    N. N'Koulou

    Marshalled the backline well and is definitely one of the standout performers within the Cameroon defensive ranks ahead of the World Cup.
  • Alex Song
    11
    2

    Alex Song

    Won the midfield battle alongside Makoun and produced a strong performance.
  • Jean II Makoun
    6
    0

    Jean II Makoun

    Man of the match. Scored two goals, one a thumping header and the second showing the composure of a striker to slot home. Was everywhere and produced some vital tackles and passes.
  • Stéphane M'Bia
    5
    3

    Stéphane M'Bia

    Slotted into defence and did a steady enough job but was perhaps wisely replaced on 70 minutes.
  • Eyong Enoh
    6
    1

    Eyong Enoh

    Decent enough without getting hugely involved but did what was required as Cameroon dominated much of the game.
  • B. Moukandjo
    6
    0

    B. Moukandjo

    Fantastic in the first half and the decision to bring him into the line-up certainly paid off. Direct running caused havoc down the left and scored a fine individual goal. Missed a glorious opportunity after the break but it was not costly.
  • Pierre Achille Webo
    5
    3

    Pierre Achille Webo

    Set Cameroon on their way to Brazil with an expertly-taken early goal. Came off midway through the second half but had played his part in a convincing wing.
  • Eto'o
    11
    4

    Eto'o

    Did not get on the scoresheet himself but did put his issues with the national team to one side and produced a good all-round performance. Showed fine movement and played some good passes but not at his brilliant best.

Substitutions

  • D. Nounkeu
    1
    1

    D. Nounkeu

    Came on for M’Bia in defence with 20 minutes remaining.
  • Landry N'Guemo
    1
    0

    Landry N'Guemo

    A late change for Moukandjo, who had picked up a knock.
  • Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
    4
    1

    Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting

    An excellent cameo. Made a real difference after coming on. His shot off the post led to Makoun’s goal and he created other opportunities for himself and his team-mates.
  • Moez Bin Sharifa

    0

    Moez Bin Sharifa

    Saw plenty of action. Conceded four goals and did not look convincing at times, but still made some decent stops that prevented an even heavier defeat.
  • Karim Haggui
    0
    1

    Karim Haggui

    Struggled to make his experience count as he and his team-mates failed to cope with Cameroon’s attacking play.
  • Sayam Ben Youssef
    0
    0

    Sayam Ben Youssef

    All at sea defensively, almost gave away a penalty for handball and missed a glorious headed opportunity at the other end - not his finest match.
  • Samah   Derbali
    0
    0

    Samah Derbali

    Found to be out of his depth against Cameroon’s skilful attackers.
  • Yassine Mikari
    0
    1

    Yassine Mikari

    Would have been expected to put in a better performance in a game of such magnitude but, just like the rest of his team-mates, he proved a let-down.
  • Hocine Ragued
    1
    0

    Hocine Ragued

    Another one of Tunisia’s midfielders who was overrun by the likes of Song and Makoun as the visitors failed to get a foothold in the game early on.
  • Wissem Ben Yahia
    0
    0

    Wissem Ben Yahia

    Created a great opportunity for Ben Youssef and performed reasonably well before he was replaced by Allagui late on in.
  • Yassine Chikhaoui
    0
    1

    Yassine Chikhaoui

    Substituted at half-time after making no impact as Cameroon dominated the midfield battle.
  • Mohamed Amine Chermiti
    0
    2

    Mohamed Amine Chermiti

    Replaced at the bteak after struggling to get involved and watched on as his replacement Akaichi strike within minutes of his arrival.
  • Fakhereedine Ben Youssef
    2
    0

    Fakhereedine Ben Youssef

    May have gone down too easily but felt he should have won a second-half penalty at 2-1 that would have turned the game.
  • Saber Khlifa
    0
    2

    Saber Khlifa

    The Marseille striker is one of the better-known players in the Tunisia line-up but he carried little threat over the course of the 90 minutes.

Substitutions

  • Fabien Camus
    0
    0

    Fabien Camus

    Neat and tidy with his passing after coming on at half-time. A positive introduction.
  • Ahmed Akaichi
    1
    0

    Ahmed Akaichi

    Made an immediate impact, scoring with a fantastic finish within minutes of entering the fray. Always a threat but missed an opportunity to bet a second in the closing stages.
  • Sami Allagui
    0
    0

    Sami Allagui

    Came on as the last roll of the dice for Tunisia and couldn’t find an opportunity to score. ------------------- goal.com
