The semifinals of the Cup of Cameroon 2021 edition were played on Saturday July 31 with some unexpected results recorded.
Current champions of Cameroon PWD of Bamenda were ruthless in their quest to the finals. The Abakwa boys eliminated 6 time winners Union Sportive of Douala 3-0 to book a place in their third finals.
PWD reinvented her fine form in the league to the Cup games as they have been very consistent beating Avion Academy of Douala 2-0 at the quarter finals before over powering Union in Bafoussam. PWD thus qualifies to the finals for the third time in their history after previously crashing in both occasions.
The shock of the day was recorded by Astres of Douala who led Coton Sport of Garoua 3-0 into the other semi final game played in Bertoua.
Since their premature elimination at the CAF Confederation Cup semi finals, the team from Garoua has been on a nose dive towards inconsistency.
Astre of Douala who have also struggled in the league this season can find solace in the Cup of Cameroon. After eliminating Coton Sport, confidence must have hyped towards playing the finals, but they will have another team from Bamenda to deal with. The last encounter between Astre and a team from that city, ended in an acute humiliation. Astre were beaten 5-0 in Douala by visiting Yong Sports Academy of Bamenda less than a month ago.
The date of the finals of this year's Cup game is yet to be made public by FECAFOOT. The football body has until August 8 to submit Cameroon's representative clubs to CAF inter club competitions for next football season. The local championship is on a hold. Who will represent Cameroon in the Champions League?. The answer is far fetched from the pitches in Cameroon.
