[03/02/2020] - NFI kicked out in round 4 of Cameroon Cup

In round 4 of the Cameroon Cup in Buea on Sunday 02.02.2020, the NFI Sky Boys were thrashed by 3 goals to 0 and hence bowed out of the competition.

Without go into details, we blame poor refereeing for the defeat. Most NFI important actions were stopped by unfounded offsides. Istanbul FA went into the lead in the first half. In the second half, the central defended was given a red card. This did not deter the team to continue to lead in play. They were however unlucky as only the opponent could score the goals. We congratulate the winner and wish them success in the competition, while we wish to learn from our mistakes.

We are very proud of our boys for going this far and hope to do better next time.

I another very fiercely contested game today, the NFI Sky Boys again eliminated Kumba Lakers in the second leg (Meme semi finals) of the Cameroon Cup by 6-5 after penalties. The game ended after 90 minutes with a 1-1 draw.

It should be noted that Kumba Lakers came back into the competition as best losers and fate paired us again.

Barely a few minutes into the game, the Lakers took the lead through a penalty. NFI was the more better side during the game but were unlucky to convert their chances into goals. It was only deep into the second half that the NFI was able to level score, through penalty by Akuli Mandi.

With one man down due to a red card, the NFI could safely hold the game, though still playing better, into penalties. As usual, the NFI converted all its shots into goals while NFI goalkeeper Anu Bordwin stopped a Lakers penalty . The NFI therefore looks forward to playing the finals against Future Dreams in order to get the Meme champion that will face the other divisions. Read more..
