AFCON 2021: Host Cameroon turned into the principal group to qualify for the last 16 at the Africa Cup of Nations with a vehement 4-1 success over Ethiopia in Group A.
Vincent Aboubakar and Karl Toko-Ekambi scored double each after Ethiopia took an early lead in Yaounde.
Hotessa Dawa slid home following four minutes however the hosts were level after eight as Toko-Ekambi headed home.
In the last half, Aboubakar struck two times, and Lyon’s Toko-Ekambi then, at that point, added his second following 67 minutes.
Cameroon are sure to qualify for the next stage as one of the most outstanding four third-set sides at the very least, yet will win their group assuming that they stay away from rout against Cape Verde on Monday.
Subsequent to scoring two penalties as the Burkinabe were beaten 2-1 on the first day of the season, Cameroon captain Aboubakar is the competition’s top scorer – with his header and tap-in taking him to four goals.
He now has a record of five goals from 10 Nations Cup games, a marked improvement from his first eight games, which produced just one goal – the winner itself in the 2017 final.
The Indomitable Lions, who are looking for a 6th Nations Cup title for Cameroon, have now dominated six matches in succession – and have the two feet in the last 16, with six points to their name.
