The ambitions of Edu Sports FC in the 2023 Cameroon Cup race have come to a stop following their elimination at the 16th finals of the competition.
Champions FC sealed a 1-0 win to progress to the next round of the competition. The match was staged at the Bertoua Municipal Stadium. Champion’s goal was scored in the first period of the game but the will to balance the scoreline in the second half as well as take the lead was unsuccessful for Edu Sports.
Edu Sports Academy FC, a third-division team in the Center Region of Cameroon, is participating in the Mfoundi Divisional League.
In the 32 finals, Edu Sports eliminated the 2008 finalists, Aigle Royal of Menoua on penalties on May 28 to progress to the next stage of the competition. Though having had good scoring opportunities in the entire game, El Pacha of Menoua boys failed to create an impact as they say their dreams ended.
One of the pivotal figures for Edu Sports in the race to the 2023 finals has been the 20-year-old shot keeper, Kian Dzelanyuy Wirndzerem. Before stopping two penalties during their match against Aigle, he is said to have been instrumental for the team during the regional qualifiers.
