Cameroon secures ticket to Men's World Championship

 
Nathan Wounembaina celebrates Cameroon's third ticket to the World Championship in its history
 

Yaoundé, Cameroon, February 17, 2014 – Cameroon booked a ticket to the FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship 2014 Poland by winning Pool T of the African qualification tournament held at Palais des Sports in Yaoundé, Cameroon on Monday.

Cameroon hammered Gabon 3-0 (25-11, 25-14, 25-17) in a match dominated by the winners. Sem Dolengombai was Cameroon's top scorer with 13 points, while Dan J' Mateya led Gabon with eight.

Cameroon finished the five-nation round robin tournament with a win-loss ratio of 3-1 – to gain nine points and equal Algeria and Rwanda with the same win-loss ratio and total points – but then overwhelmed the set quotient 10-4 ahead of Algeria, who came second with 9-4 quotient and Rwanda who came third with 9-6.

This is the third qualification ticket for the west African country after 1990 and 2010, with their best result in the last edition when they finished 13th after getting through the first round.

Algeria clinched their last win against Nigeria in a thriller 3-1 (25-17, 25-14, 21-25, 25-15). As usual, Algeria's opposite spiker Toufik Mahjoubi led his team and match scorers with 23 points, while Mathew E'ejeh scored 17 as Nigeria's best scorer.

Cameroon joins Egypt as the African countries now qualified for the premier FIVB men’s volleyball event. One more ticket is still on the line for Pool Y countries – Tunisia, Seychelles, Congo, Senegal and Nigeria – who will begin their qualifiers March 2 to March 8.

The men’s and women’s FIVB Volleyball World Championships are staged every four years and are the most prestigious event in international volleyball. The FIVB's Men’s World Championships Poland 2014 will take place from August 30 to September 21.
