Ireland match Cameroon

The Republic of Ireland drew 1-1 against an impressive Cameroon side without the aid of their disgraced skipper Roy Keane. Matt Holland equalised after Cameroon took the lead via Patrick Mboma.

After some observers had written off Ireland's chances without the driving presence of their captain, the side pulled together to earn a point against a strong and skilful Cameroon side.

Damian Duff was a constant threat, and Robbie Keane had an excellent chance to score from a cross by Keven Kilbane.

Cameroon had greater possession in the first half, and went in at the break with a deserved lead.

The Republic started brightly in the second half, and Holland grabbed the equaliser from a poor clearance by Raymond Kalla.
