Cameroon 1-0 Colombia

Cameroon's celebrations on reaching the Confederations Cup final were dramatically cut short as players learned team-mate Marc-Vivien Foe had died.

Foe was taken away on a stretcher after collapsing in the second half of the 1-0 victory over Colombia.

He was given mouth-to-mouth resuscitation before being taken off the field.

Earlier, Pius Ndiefi had scored the only goal of the semi-final, converting from close range after nine minutes from a Mohamadou Idrissou header back across goal.

Colombia tried to make up for a poor first half and were up against 10 men when Bill Tchato was red carded after 69 minutes.

But, despite hitting the woodwork twice, Colombia failed to break down a resolute defence.


Cameroon: Idris Kameni; Pierre Njanka, Rigobert Song, Lucien Mettomo, Bill Tchato; Geremi, Mohamadou Idrissou, Marc-Vivien Foe, Modeste Mbami, Eric Djemba Djemba; Pius Ndiefi.

Colombia: Oscar Cordoba; Gonzalo Martinez, Mario Yepes, Ivan Cordoba, Gerardo Bedoya; Jairo Patino, Jorge Lopez, Giovanni Hernandez, Ruben Dario Velasquez, Arnulfo Valentierra; Victor Aristizabal.

Referee: Markus Merk (Germany).
