Uzbekistan started better in the match and reached the opposing post in their first attack. Then, he managed to open the scoring in the 21st minute, after a quick offensive transition that ended in a good cross pass from Shomurodov for Erkinov to complete.
The Cameroonians even had chances to equalize, but they didn’t show good aim or they stopped in the goalkeeper Yusupov. Uzbekistan focused on counterattacks and managed to constantly create danger, until reaching the second goal, 15 minutes from time, after Khamrobekov’s cross for Uronov.
