Cameroon came through a serious test against Burkina Faso to notch an opening win thanks to two penalties from the impressive Vincent Aboubakar.
Moumi Ngamaleu, in addition, had a fine match and André-Frank Zambo Anguissa was none too shabby in the middle of the park for the hosts.

Burkina Faso, who were without their coach Kamou Malo and six players who tested positive for COVID-19 in the build-up to the match, gave away two clumsy penalties after Gustavo Sangare had silenced the home crowd, estimated at around 45,000 fans at the newly-built Olembe Stadium, with the first goal of the game.
So it’s Cameroon who top Group A after that win in the opening match of the tournament.
Elsewhere in the group, Ethiopia face Cape Verde later this evening. Both sides know that it’s their best chance of a win, with difficult games against the tournament hosts and Burkina Faso to come.
