AFCON 2021: Cameroon becomes first country to scale through to knockout stages

Access Bank
Cameroon have turned the first country to qualify for the knockout stages of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

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

Chief Vincent Aboubakar and Karl Toko-Ekambi both scored two times 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.

Be that as it may, they needed to return from behind at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde, after Dawa Hotessa gave Ethiopia a shock lead.

The five-time African champions are presently very much positioned to complete top of Group A.

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