Cameroon picks 3pts, begins Afcon 2021 with a win

Vincent Aboubakar with the ball after scoring via penalty

Cameroon came from behind against Burkina Faso, thanks to two penalties by Vincent Aboubakar, to win the curtain-raiser at the Africa Cup of Nations.

An acrobatic volley from Gustavo Sangare had put the Burkinabe ahead midway through the first half in Yaounde, but two unerring penalties from captain Vincent Aboubakar turned the game around for the hosts before half-time.

Indomitable Lions keeper Andre Onana made two crucial second-half saves as Toni Conceicao’s side opened their Group A campaign with victory.

Sunday’s second Group A game sees Ethiopia face Cape Verde at 19:00 GMT.
