Cameroon with take on Ethiopia this Thursday at Olembe Stadium in Yaoundé for their second AFCON 2021 game with the aim to seal the qualification to the round of 16. The Indomitable Lions won their opening game making a strong come back after conceding the first goal scored by Gustavo Sangare. Ethiopia on the other hand were beaten by Cabo Verde for their first match and will be also looking for their first points in the tournament. Predicted line-ups. Cameroon XI : Onana – Fai, Onguéné, Ngadeu, Tolo – Kunde, Anguissa, Oum Gouet – Toko- Ekambi , Aboubakar , Choupo-Moting.

For that to happen, Ethiopia will have to go some. Their first encounter, a 1-0 defeat to covid-stricken Cape Verde, could scarcely have gone worse, nor so they have the players to rebound from so significant a setback. Consequently, the intrigue of this match will be the extent to which the hosts can continue marking their territory. They’re not the most talented squad or even that close to it, but if Vincent Aboubakar – who was extremely poor in the last Afcon – has hit a streak, momentum can take them deep.

Toko Ekambi Precious

The click for Karl Toko Ekambi. Finally a capital benefit for the center of Olympique Lyonnais with its selection. In this match, we have seen a powerful player relying on his speed to make differences.

With an interesting copy on the offensive plan, the 29-year-old player has shown that he had an indisputable holder. A second goal will close its quasi-perfect copy. Grand Toko in Olembé this afternoon.

FLOPS

Choupo-Moting in in

A return to the challenging competition for Eric Choupo-Moting. Injured since November, the Cameroon attacker imposed his physics against Ethiopian defenders but he missed attendance in the opposing surface. As a lack of rhythm, he relieved his two teammates in attack by his ball jacks on purpose but did not convince at this exit. His coach left him on the ground for an hour of play. Not at the top of his shape, Choupo-Moting must be patient to be present and at the time at the rendezvous of the 8th finals.

Ethiopian Defense

The men of Wubetu Abate totally lost the thread of the meeting on the return of the locker rooms. By undergoing Cameroonian waves, the central defenders of Ethiopia have been late on each of the opposing offensives. As evidenced by the two goals of Aboubakar and that of Toko Ekambi, all in the second period. The Portier of the Ethiopian selection Shanko only saw the damage .. with four goals cashed, the score is heavy for a team that the match was held by the right end at the end of the first act. To resume against Burkina Faso.
