AFCON2021: Cameroon Handed Fair Chance to Quarter Finals Qualification

By A.J

The final group games of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations have been completed and the 16 round fixtures have been made known.

The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon will face AFCON newbies Comoros in the Round of 16. It is by no means an easy draw for Cameroon, but it is the one many Cameroonians were hoping for, from potential opponents including Ivory Coast and Algeria.

Cameroonians also view the fixture as a clear path to the quarter-finals, with many expecting the Indomitable Lions to walk over Comoros to the next round.

Cameroonians think the elimination of potential title contenders from the tournament like title holders Algeria, and 4 times champions Ghana is a plus for the Indomitable Lions.

Nevertheless, the current tournament has proven to be filled with major upsets, and Cameroon will be shooting themselves in the leg if they approached any opponent with complacency.


Cameroonians have firsthand witnessed what the so-called underdogs are capable of in this tournament, especially in games with the Gambia, Comoros, Sierra Leone, Cape Verde, and Equatorial Guinea.

Nevertheless, the goal for the Indomitable Lions will be to win the trophy on home soil, however, failure to do this must be upon convincing performances in front of the supporters.
