The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon will aim the three points to qualify for the next round of TotalEnergies AFCON 2021 when they face Ethiopia in their second game of the competition.

Vincent Aboubacar and his teammates, winners against Burkina Faso (2-1) in the previous match, will be happy to continue their momentum on Thursday to secure a place in the round of 16.

Antonio Conceiçao, Indomitable Lions coach will count on an already established squad for a match which promises to be within his reach against an Ethiopian team which returns to TotalEnergies AFCON after missing the last three editions (2015, 2017 and 2019).

“We prepared our match in the best conditions and with the same determination as the first match played and won against Burkina Faso. All the players are ready for Thursday’s meeting,” said Cameroon’s coach Antonio Conceiçao.

On the Ethiopian side, Tamene’s teammates only think about forgetting the stinging defeat last Sunday against Cape Verde (1-0) to maintain their chances to qualify for the next round of the tournament.

Winners of the 1962 edition, the Walya will play their game on Thursday against Cameroon with an offensive tactical scheme to unlock the game from the start.

For Ethiopia’s coach Wubetu Abate, Thursday’s game will be decisive. “We will play our chances to the end, especially as we will face a great team from Cameroon. We are proud to represent our country in this tournament and that boosts us even more. We will play against the host country, in front of their home crowd. He is a strong opponent but we will do our best to have a good game, “said Abate.
