AFCON: Cameroon Becomes First Country To Qualify For Knockout Stages, Defeats Ethiopia


 

The hosts beat Ethiopia 4-1 on Thursday evening to seal their spot.


Captain Vincent Aboubakar and Karl Toko-Ekambi both scored twice to take the Indomitable Lions through with one group game to spare.


Cameroon had defeated Burkina Faso 2-1 last Sunday in their opening fixture.


But they had to come back from behind at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde, after Dawa Hotessa gave Ethiopia a shock lead.


The five-time African champions are now well-placed to finish top of Group A.


Their last group game is against Cape Verde, while Burkina Faso take on Ethiopia.
