Posted by

If you’re going to lose the biggest match of your career, you might as well go down fighting, and that’s exactly the spirit that lowly Comoros are showing in their AFCON match against Cameroon.

Despite being down to 10 men for much of the game, and losing 2-0 with 10 minutes to play, the islanders weren’t giving up.

Awarded a free-kick some 35 yards from goal, Youssouf M’Changama decided to try his luck.
