Algeria looked to have booked their place when Ahmed Touba netted with three minutes remaining at the end of extra time. But as Cameroon pushed everyone forward for the final play of the game, Toko Ekambi latched onto a loose ball to net a most unlikely winner.
Earlier in the first half, Choupo-Moting showed the hunting ways to the Indomitable Lions with opener in the 22nd minute that gave qualification hope to Rigobert Song’s men.
The victory on the away goals rule sealed an eighth World Cup finals appearance for the Indomitable Lions and followed a 1-0 win for Algeria in the first leg on Friday that left them heavy favourites to advance.
