Cameroon got off to a solid start in Group B of the third and final stage of CAF qualifying for Russia 2018. Despite conceding an early goal, the Indomitable Lions held their own against group-favorite Algeria. The equalizer arrived midway through the first half, and Cameroon held on for the 1-1 draw.

Head coach Hugo Broos pronounced himself satisfied with the result, saying "I will not be choosy" about picking up a point against the team he regards as the best in Africa.

New York Red Bulls forward Anatole Abang was a spectator throughout.

Abang returns to his current club, Hobro IK - where he is loan for the duration of the Danish soccer season - to find his team top of Denmark's second tier. Hobro beat bottom-of-the-table AB, 3-0, during Abang's absence for international duty.

Hobro has back-to-back home games coming up: a match against Naestved on October 16, followed by a visit from Frederica on October 20.

Cameroon's next big game is the home opener of its current phase of World Cup qualifiersagainst Zambia on November 12.
