FT: Cameroon 2-1 Burkina Faso, Host kickstarts AFCON with a win, Aboubakar grabs brace!


Cameroon 2-1 Burkina Faso Two first-half penalties from Aboubakar enough to give the tournament hosts a winning start.

No Penalty!

It takes more than three minutes, but eventually VAR rules out a Cameroon goal for offside! Burkina Faso still in this with half an hour to play.

Second Half

We are out for the second 45!


That was an intense opener. The hosts lead going into halftime but we would be looking out for how Burkina Faso reacts in the second half.

Another Penalty Converted!

Aboubakar makes it 2-1 for the Indomitable Lions from the spot

Goal! Cameroon 1-1 Burkina Faso

Cameroon equalize through captain Vincent Aboubakar and you can see why the availability of VAR right from the start of the tournament is very important. No excuses

Goooooooaaaaal – Cameroon 0-1 Burkina Faso

We have the first goal of the tournament and it is a beauty to behold! Gustavo Sangare puts a beautiful effort past Andre Onana

Kick Off

It is official! AFCON has officially begun!


This tournament looks to unite ALL of Africa through the beautiful round leather game.

FIRST GAME OF THE TOURNAMENT – Cameroon vs Burkina Faso

The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon face Burkina Faso in the very first game of the tournament. The world would be watching the outcome of this one.


The delayed Africa Cup of Nations finally begins today as the hosts’ kick-off Group A in the opening fixture at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde.

AFCON’s latest edition has twice been moved due to climate and Covid-19 reasons, but goes ahead this month after initial fears over clubs not releasing their players as a result of the pandemic.

Much will be expected of five-time winners Cameroon on home soil, with Toni Conceicao’s team boasting the likes of Vincent Aboubakar, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

The images from Cameroon are just delightful with the opening ceremony putting African cultures on full display.
