Hosts Cameroon reached the second round of the African Cup with a 4-1 victory over Ethiopia on the second day of Group A.
The “Indomitable Lions” were caught with the wrong foot by the East Africans in the fourth minute: Cameroon’s defense acted violently in Ethiopia’s first lead, Hotsa shot unimpeded.
But Cameroon hit back in the eighth minute. Ethiopian goalkeeper Teklemariam could only block a long-range shot from Abubakar, and Faye passed the free ball into the penalty area, where Toko Ekambi shook the ball to equalize.
In the second half, Abu Bakr makes the decision with a double hit. In the 53rd minute, Al-Nassr striker Riyadh hit a cross from Al-Fay into the goal. Two minutes later, the Cameroon captain entered a Stanglpass that was played by Altacher Ngamaleu from close range. In the 67th minute, Toko Ekambi also tied his double. The Lyon striker slashes through Hongla’s pass and then makes Ethiopia look old defensive before the ball hits the short corner.
Salzburg defender Onegin remains on the bench, as does ex-Altascher Guewe. N’Gamalio, who was also under contract with “Landel”, will replace in the 69th minute.
With six points from two matches, Cameroon qualified for the Round of 16, with the group winners, the runner-up runners-up and the four best three in the group advancing. The tour will conclude with a duel between Cape Verde and Burkina Faso from 8:00 pm.
