Ranked 38th in the world, Cameroon began their 2023 African Cup of Nations qualifiers on a winning note, seeing off Burundi 1-0 in June.

Uzbekistan, meanwhile, came up short in their World Cup ambitions once again after finishing third in Group D in the second round. However, they made up for that by securing a place in next year’s Asia Cup.

Uzbekistan romped through their group in the third qualifying round – winning all three games – scoring nine times and conceding none.
