Cameroon's head coach Rigobert Song said: "We are pleased with the result, but the journey ahead is long.

"We will continue to work hard to achieve our goal of qualifying for the World Cup."

Cameroon travel to Tunisia to take on Libya, on Tuesday.

Tchamadeu left Colchester on deadline day to join Stoke on a four-year deal, for an undisclosed fee.
