The hosts dominated the first half, creating nine efforts on goal, with dangerman Vincent Aboubakar having a header well saved and guiding another wide from close range.

It was a similar story in the second half, with the Indomitable Lions having success via crosses from the wide areas.

And they eventually broke the deadlock when Collins Fai’s pinpoint delivery from the right wing was nodded into the bottom corner by Ekambi.

The Scorpions made a triple substitution in a bid to change things around but seconds later Cameroon doubled their lead when Lyon striker Ekambi converted a low cross at the far post.

Gambia were unable to create a chance of note as the hosts comfortably held on to set up a semi-final clash with either Egypt or Morocco who play on Sunday.

And the performance against Comoros provided them with a wakeup call as they were more clinical and dominant today against Gambia, a side who have not conceded many goals.

But they have faced two no Afcon debutants in their past two games and face a much sterner test against the more experienced Egypt or Morocco in the last four.
