The hosts will look to make it back to back wins at the Africa Cup of Nations today to become the first team to book their place in the last 16.
After so many doubts and delays, Cameroon finally kicked off the latest edition of AFCON with a hard-fought 2-1 Group A victory over Burkina Faso in Yaounde on Sunday.
Captain Vincent Aboubakar was the hero on opening day, netting two late first-half penalties as the Indomitable Lions – who won the last of their five titles in 2017 – came from behind to win after Gustavo Sangare’s early volley.
Toni Conceicao’s side will now also be strong favourites to see off an Ethiopia team who lost their first fixture to Covid-hit Cape Verde courtesy of a Julio Tavares header before the break.
Yared Bayeh was also sent off after a VAR check at the Olembe Stadium, with Abraham Mebratu’s men now facing a very tough task indeed to make it past the group stage for the first time since 1970.
