Cameroon booked their spot in the World Cup finals in Brazil after easily defeating Tunisia 4-1 on Sunday in the second leg of their decisive playoff.

Cameroon qualified for the World Cup with a 4-1 win over Tunisia in the second leg of their playoff on Sunday.

Cameroon won by the same score on aggregate after the teams drew 0-0 in the first leg in Tunisia.

Pierre Webo scored after four minutes for Cameroon and Benjamin Moundandjo made it 2-0 in the 30th at Omnisports Ahmadou-Ahidjo stadium.

Ahmed Akaichi pulled one back for the visiting Tunisians just after halftime, but Jean Makoun added a third in the 65th and scored again in the 86th to seal Cameroon’s progress.

Cameroon joins fellow West African teams Nigeria and Ivory Coast at the tournament in Brazil next year. Those teams qualified on Saturday.

Cameroon, Africa’s first quarterfinalist in 1990, will play in its seventh World Cup.
