Morocco v Cameroon
Cameroon qualify for their sixth appearance at the World Cup Finals

Cameroon's Indomitable Lions are through to the World Cup finals South Africa following a 2-0 victory over Morocco in Fez.

Their qualification for South Africa 2010 sets a new African record of six World Cup appearances.

Cameroon's Achille Webo scored 18 minutes into the encounter with a left-foot shot that went in off the post.

Samuel Eto'o then added to the tally heading in from a corner kick taken by Geremi Njitap.

25,000 spectators were allowed free admission to watch the game in Fez.

Cameroon's 2010 had a disastrous start with a 1-nil defeat against Togo and a goalless draw with Morocco.

Their campaign picked up with the arrival of French coach Paul Le Guen in July.

Veteran player Geremi Njitap says he has brought more professionalism to Cameroon's national team set up.

In Lome, Floyd Ayite scored from 20 yards out for the Togolese in the dying minutes against Gabon to take the Hawks to the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola.
