A nervy Cameroon scored twice in the second half to beat Burundi 3-0 in Garoua on Tuesday and qualify for January's Africa Cup of Nations finals, overcoming their plucky opponents as André Onana marked his return to the team with a series of key saves.
Cameroon had needed to win the game to ensure a place in the finals. Victory saw them finish top of three-team Group C and also ensured that Namibia would qualify with them while Burundi missed out.
Wooh had missed the header from a corner by Karl Toko Ekambi but it fell loose and he was quick to sweep it home.
A clearance that came off the back of a defender allowed captain Vincent Aboubakar to score the third goal deep in stoppage time.
Burundi had needed only a draw and, despite their lowly ranking 98 places below the 42nd-ranked Indomitable Lions, came out the more positive team and Onana had to make several key stops to deny both Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana and Saidi Ntibazonzika.
Onana was making his return to the side after a fallout with coach Rigobert Song during the World Cup in Qatar last year which resulted in him being kicked out of their camp.
With Group C settled, the field for the 24-team Cup of Nations finals in the Ivory Coast from Jan. 13-Feb. 11 next year is complete.
