AFCON – Cameroon started winning



Cameroon opened the tournament with a victory over Burkina Faso. Aboubakar scored the two penalty goals to give the hosts the victory and aspire to the round of 16, while Sangaré scored the only goal of the visit.

Cameroon opened the Africa Cup of Nations in their country with a 2-1 win over Burkina Faso.

Vincent Aboubakar, the team captain, scored the two goals via penalty to overcome a controversial match.

The 33rd edition of the CAN began without surprise, although at times – for a quarter of an hour – he flew over the Paul Biya stadium in Olembe, in Yaoundé, desperation that the locals would lose the match.

After a bad start by André Onana, Ajax’s local goalkeeper and with a contract arranged to go to Inter, Gustavo Sangaré put Burkina Faso ahead in the 24th minute.

Algerian referee Mustapha Ghorbal signaled two penalties before half-time that led the Lions to turn the score around.

Bertrand Traore, who the day before had harshly criticized the organization for the process of coronavirus controls that had caused them to lose a good part of the starting team, bitterly protested both actions.

In the first, it was the same Burkina Faso captain who fouled Zambo Anguissa and in the second, already in the first half, it was Issofou Dayo who hit Michael Ngadeu.

Actions well charged for being unnecessary, violent and out of time. Both reviewed by the VAR.

Aboubakar, currently at Al Nasr Saudi and former Porto striker, did not miss the two penalties to star in the comeback.

In the second half he scored a third goal, but the referee annulled it after passing the action through the VAR.

Cameroon, a team led by Toni Conceiçao, is positioned to advance to the round of 16.

In the other Group A match, Cape Verde beat Ethiopia 1-0 with a header from Júlio Tavares. In the team that fell, Yared Baye was expelled in an unusual way at 12! Game minutes for a rude kick from behind.
