A late goal in the 80 minute by striker Benjamin Moukandjo gave Cameroon the upper hand of the game against Guinea-Bissau in the 2013 African Cup of Nations on Saturday.

Cameroon made use of the home and fans advantage and defeated their foes Guinea-Bissau 1-0 to ease their way to the CAN 2013.

In another game, Nigeria defeated Rwanda 2-0 in the second leg of the African Cup of Nations also on Saturday.

The Super Eagles dominated their opponents throughout the game as they edged to score an early goal when striker Ikechukwu Uche found the net only 9 minutes after the beginning. Forward Ahmed Musa doubled the score in the 56 minute to finish the hopes of Rwanda's players to return to the game again.

Early Saturday, Malawi defeated Chad 2-0 and Uganda smashed Congo 4-0.
