Cameroon secure 1/16th AFCON knockout spot

Vincent Aboubakar netted another brace as Cameroon beat a spirited Ethiopia side 4-1 to extend their perfect start to the Africa Cup of Nations.

The hosts certainly did not have it all their own way, as Dawa Hotessa put Ethiopia in front inside five minutes, but Karl Toko Ekambi got Cameroon back on terms.

A brace after the break from Aboubakar and a second goal for Ekambi wrapped up the result though after a brilliant second-half display, as Cameroon became the first team to book their place in the last 16.

After beating Burkina Faso in the tournament opener, this win ensured they have the option of resting key men in their final group match against Cape Verde. – Eurosport
