2022 Intercompany Tournament: The National Social Insurance Fund (NSIF) is already on top of pool A
The pennant team of the National Social Insurance Fund (NSIF) has been successfully participating since the 20th of August 2022 in this tournament sponsored by Mohamadou Saoudi, president of the Board of Directors of Cameroon Telecommunications (CAMTEL).
The match ended in a 2-2 draw. This score ended the second match of the National Social Insurance Fund's football team against the National Hydrocarbons Corporation (SNH). It was on Saturday 27 August 2022 at the Omnisports annex stadium. The two opponents presented a great show. The SNH team opened the score in the 18th minute of the first leg, thus putting pressure on its opponent. After half-time, the physical freshness of the 22 players offered a breathtaking spectacle to the numerous spectators. The NSIF players started the second half with more determination. In the first minutes, the team equalized thanks to the number 8, Michel Ngaffi.
23 minutes later, number 10 scored the second goal and allowed NSIF to take the lead. Unfortunately, this was only for a short time, as the next minute SNH came back to score. At the end of the extra time, the final score was two goals to one.
Happy start to the tournament
It was a spectacular match, just like the tournament that started on 20 August. In the first match, the NSIF won by 5 goals to nil. In this exciting match, Mohamed Moctar Tachini, author of 3 goals, was crowned man of the match.
The Director General of NSIF, who attended the tournament, did not fail to express his joy and satisfaction with his team: "The goal is not always to win, but to maintain a form of brotherhood with all the players of the companies involved, I think it is most interesting that a match like this was held without incident with a lot of commitment. This gives me the opportunity to congratulate the winner, our players and encourage those who lost. Of course, we are always proud when we win, but the victory comes second".
Both matches allowed the social security institution to take first place in Pool A thanks to its overwhelming victory on the first day. The next matches will oppose the NSIF to The Bank of Central African States (BEAC), Standards and Quality Agency (ANOR) and National Agency for Information and Communication Technologies (ANTIC). The NSIF team will have to work hard to get the 9 points required to qualify for the final and thus maintain its position as the leading team in the national football scene.
