Cameroon aims to take advantage of playing at home in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
Cameroon is serious about rewarding loyal fans with the African champion trophy. However, the part of 24 has already confidently marked chances for the title with the performances. The final will take place at the beginning of next month.
Under Djamel Belmadi, the reigning champions of Algeria are now without defeat for the last 26 matches. The tournament’s runners-up in 2019 Senegal, with such notable players as Sadio Mane and Edouard Mendy, are ante-post favourites from the beginning. The last team to win The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations at home was Egypt in 2006.
The team of Tony Conceicao took top place in their qualifying group, regardless of the guaranteed place as the host of the championship. In the last 10 games, the Indomitable Lions have lost only one match and had a streak of five straight wins, raising the squad’s confidence.
Cameroonian fans have a common tradition to attend tournaments where the national team participates. Thus, enormous crowds were present during the African Nations Championship and Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in 2016. Therefore, many fans plan to support the soccer team to pursue the sixth AFCON title.
Notably, the last time the Lions lost a game in Yaounde was in 1988, or 33 years ago. The Senegalese team does not have any Premier League stars. However, goalkeeper Andre Onan has recently moved to the English top division. Clinton Njie will support Aboubakar in the final third of the field. Moreover, the control of the midfield from Napoli star Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa is constantly delivering troubles to the team’s opponents.
