Cameroon will be hoping to claim back to back wins in the Africa Cup of Nations when they welcome Ethiopia to the Olembe Stadium in their second Group A encounter on Thursday evening.
The Indomitable Lions got their campaign off to a winning start after they came from behind to secure a 2-1 victory over Group A rivals Burkina Faso at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde this past Sunday after Vincent Aboubakar’s brace cancelled out Gustavo Sangaré’s 24th-minute opener.
Meanwhile, Walia ibex were forced to endure a 1-0 defeat against Cape Verde in their opening Group A encounter at the same venue on Sunday evening after Julio Tavares bagged the winning goal to hand Ethiopia their first defeat.
Cameroon will come into this encounter sitting at the top of Group A, level on three points with second-placed Cape Verde, while Ethiopia sits at the foot with the table with no points after one match.
When the two sides last met in the Afcon, Cameroon and Ethiopia were forced to share the spoils after they played out to a goalless draw in their group stage encounter at Huye Stadium on 21 January 2016.
Possible Starting Lineup:
Cameroon Starting XI: Andre Onana, Jerome Onguene, Michael Ngadeu, Nouhou Tolo, Collins Fai, Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa, Samuel Oum Goet, Pierre Kunde, Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu, Karl Toko Ekambi, Vincent Aboubakar.
