Ivory Coast-Cameroon Fans Riot After Soccer Match (Video)


Ivory Coast qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations after a 0-0 draw with Cameroon, but the pitch invasion and riot afterwards are all anyone is talking about.

Police appeared to strike fans with batons in an attempt to stop them entering the field of play, but without success as hundreds made their way onto the pitch in celebration.
Fans clambered up railings at the side of the pitch to evade the attentions of baton-wielding riot police, as others watched on from the stands.

During the match, Cameroon captain Mbia was sent off for fouling Gervinho when he was adjudged to have been the last defender.
Yaya Toure’s goal-bound effort from the free-kick was headed off the line, which was the closest either side came to a goal.
Cameroon have 14 points, followed by Ivory Coast on 10, while DR Congo – who beat Sierra Leone 3-1 – are third on nine.
The Congolese could still reach the finals as the best third-placed side in the pool stages, but they will have to wait for the rest of the qualifiers on Saturday to find out their fate.
