Whites loanee Eyong Enoh was in action as Cameroon held Democratic Republic of Congo to a goalless draw to keep their FIFA World Cup 2014 dreams alive.
Enoh, who Martin Jol brought to Craven Cottage on a temporary spell in January from Ajax Amsterdam, played 90 minutes in a familiar central midfield for the Indomitable Lions at the Stade de Martyrs.
Cameroon's World Cup hopes suffered a blow following a 2-0 defeat in Togo last Sunday so securing a result in Kinshasa was crucial to keep them in touching distance of Group I leaders Libya.
With only one team advancing from Group I, the stalemate means Enoh's team go into their last group match two points behind Libya, with a victory against the leaders in Yaounde in September guaranteeing they top the table.
Finishing first ensures a play-off with one of nine other African group winners, with a win over two-legs clinching a berth in Brazil.
