Cannon Yawande reached the heights of Africa six years later, this time in the African Cup Winners’ Cup, after defeating Ancento Kotoko at the start of his African Cup of Nations championship in 1971.
Competing against a powerful generation of Ango Rangers, including Christian Choco and Alicia Autogbo, Cameron struggled in the final stage, returning home empty-handed.

In the semi-finals, Thomas Nono and friends came up against the same Ango Rangers team that prevented them from taking over the ACWC a year ago.

He left the union with everyone in Zaire.
Two weeks later, at the legendary Tata Raphael Cathedral, a theater of historical events, and in front of a very optimistic crowd, awaiting the coronation of their champion US Blaima, veteran Eugene Manga and Dr. Abigail translated Canon’s dominance into goals. What And led his team to a 3-0 victory and deserved the third African Cup of Champions.
