🥇 Throwback: Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions roar to Olympic Gold in 2000

It was a David & Goliath story for the ages as underdogs Cameroon got the better of Spain in a thrilling gold medal match at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney.

🏟 Cameroon 2-2 Spain AET 

📊 Xavi (2'), Gabri (45+2'), Amaya OG (53'), Eto'o (58')

🥇 Cameroon win 5-3 on penalties

A thrilling encounter between two talented young sides saw Cameroon come out on top to win the nation's first-ever gold at an Olympic Games. What a historic day 30 September 2000 would turn out to be in the lives of these young footballers. Three of Spain's team that day, Xavi, Puyol & Marchena, went on to win the World Cup ten years later. That makes the achievement of Eto'o, Mboma, Lauren, Geremi & the rest of the squad that much more special. 

What an unforgettable football memory, carved into history by Cameroon's Indomitable Lions.
