KUWAIT: Kuwait national football team lost to Cameroon 3-1 in an international friendly held at Jaber International Stadium in Kuwait yesterday.
The first half ended with Cameroon leading by 2-0, and Kuwait’s attempts on the Cameroonian goalkeeper were fruitless.

Cameroon then added their third goal to finish the clash in their favor.
