Clockwatch: Cameroon 2-0 Togo

Goalflashes and major incidents (all times GMT):

1950: Full-time Cameroon 2-0 Togo
The whistle goes with Cameroon deserving their victory despite an improved performance by Togo. Cameroon are through to the quarter-finals, but World Cup finalists Togo cannot now qualify from their group.

1942: GOAL Cameroon 2-0 Togo
Albert Meyong Ze
scores a brilliant goal to seal victory - and book Cameroon's place in the quarter-finals. Samuel Eto'o cuts in from the right flank and picks out Meyong Ze, who steers the ball home with a deft flick on the inside of his right foot.

1936: Cameroon look most likely to score again, with a Eto'o strike deflected narrowly wide. Salomon Olembe comes on for Rudolph Douala as the Indomitable Lions bolster their midfield with the clock ticking down.

1925: GOAL Cameroon 1-0 Togo
Samuel Eto'o
puts the Indomitable Lions ahead with a thunderous strike from 22 yards. The chance appeared to have gone as Togo scrambled the ball out of their area but they had not reckoned with Eto'o, who smashed the ball into the top corner with his right foot.

1920: Eto' brilliantly creates space with a series of jinks and feints but his shot is superbly saved by Kossi Agassa. Cameroon are looking increasingly threatening.

1912: Raymond Kalla appears to injure a hamstring and is replaced by Stephane Bikey.

1909: The game has really come to life. Sheyi Adebayor is through on goal and goes down as he tries to skip past Hamidou Souleymanou but no penalty is awarded and replays show the keeper made contact with the ball with his right foot.

1907: Cameroon win a free-kick in a dangerous position and Geremi Njitap's free-kick strikes the crossbar. It is easily the nearest the game has come to a goal.

1902: The game restarts. Jean Paul Yaovi Abalo picks up an early injury but is able to carry on.

1845: Half-time Cameroon 0-0 Togo
The Indomitable Lions almost score on the stroke of half-time. Rudolph Douala makes a mazy run into the Togo penalty area but his shot is parried by Agassa into the path of Samuel Eto'o. The striker shoots from an acute angle but hits the post.

1842: Jean Makoun shoots wide from distance. Cameroon have been restricted to shooting from long range.

1839: Eto'o has yet to find his range, hitting a free-kick over the crossbar. The Barcelona striker scored from a similar position against Angola in Cameroon's opening match.

1836: Togo's Yao Aziawonou collects a pass from Adebayor 30 yards from goal and forces Souleymanou into a rare save with a looping shot.

1829: Makoun is booked for a foul on Adebayor. It looked as though Makoun was the last man - and perhaps should have been given a red card.

1824: Eto'o tries his luck from range once more - and again misses the target.

1822: The ball breaks to Cameroon's Achille Webo in space 10 metres from goal at the far post but he strikes his shot high and wide.

1817: The menacing Eto'o jinks and dribbles his way into the Togo penalty box but he cannot quite pick out a team-mate.

1812: Adebayor, who has looked lively in the opening minutes, wins Togo their second corner in a matter of minutes, but again it is cleared.

1810: Jean Paul Yaovi Abalo makes a crunching tackle on Samuel Eto'o, who slowly climbs to his feet.

1807: Cameroon striker Eto'o tries an extremely ambitious free-kick that easily misses Kossi Agassa's goal.

1805: It is an open start to the game with both teams enjoying early forays forward. The stands are packed with colourful spectators singing and cheering on their team.

1800: The match starts with Cameroon in green and red, while Togo are in yellow.

1755: The players make their way out on to the pitch at the Cairo Military Academy Stadium.

1740 GMT: Togo coach Steven Keshi has picked Emmanuel 'Sheyi' Adebayor to start against Cameroon despite the pair's bust-up earlier in the tournament. Cameroon name a full-strength team.
