Lions celebrating goal

The indomitable Lions of Cameroon would take part in the qualifiers of the AFCON 2021 edition to be held in their own back yard against Cape Verde, Mozambique and Rwanda in group F – though they are already qualified as the host nation.

With all due respect to the other teams, it is a lucky draw for the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon perhaps a good opening for them to test new talents ahead of the competition proper.

Statistically looking at the group for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers and comparing with that of 2019, one could say without a shadow of doubt that: Morocco, Malawi and Comoros posed more of a threat than Rwanda, Mozambique and Cape Verde would do. However, Cape Verde stopped Cameroon from making the 2013 AFCON and she managed to get to the quarterfinals in their first time of asking.

The great Samuel Eto’o made mention of the fact that he is eagerly waiting to see Cameroon have a go against Cape Verde because of the little history between the two.

The qualification has been scheduled to kick start with the first leg of preliminaries from the 7th of October 2019.
