Cameroon will be locking horns against Ethiopia in the Group A Matchday 2 of the Africa Cup of Nations AFCON 2021 on Thursday, 13th January 2022 at the Olembe Stadium.
Cameroon defeated Burkina Faso in their opening game of the Africa Cup of Nations 2021, coming from behind to win. With Vincent Aboubakar scoring twice, the Indomitable Lions rallied back well to turn the game around. In their 2-1 triumph, they scored both goals from the spot, so they’ll be looking to get more strikes in open play versus Ethiopia.
On the other hand, Ethiopia got off to a shaky start after losing 1-0 to Cape Verde in their first match. They played most of the game with ten men when Yared Baye was sent off for a serious foul after only 12 minutes, leaving his mates with an impossible job. They must now at the very least avoid loss if they are to advance to the following round of the tournament.
