AFCON 2021, Cameroon 4-1 Ethiopia: Aboubakar and Toko Ekambi double up for tournament hosts

At
the
Olembe
Stadium
in
Yaounde,
Aboubakar
and
Karl
Toko
Ekambi
feasted
on
generous
defending
to
make
it
two
wins
from
two
for
Cameroon.
For
Aboubakar,
this
was
his
second
double
in
AFCON
so
far,
after
also
scoring
twice
in
an
opening
win
over
Burkina
Faso.

Ethiopia
stunned
the
home
crowd
with
a
fourth-minute
opener,
Dawa
Hotessa
tucking
in
from
close
range
after
some
dismal
defending.
But
there
was
a
near-immediate
response,
Cameroon
levelling
with
a
fine
header
from
Toko
Ekambi
in
the
eighth
minute.

Aboubakar
saw
a
25-yard
shot
repelled
by
Ethiopia
goalkeeper
Teklemariam
Shanko
in
the
lead-up,
but
Collins
Fai
collected
the
loose
ball
wide
on
the
right
and
sent
in
a
fine
cross
for
Toko
Ekambi
to
finish
clinically
at
the
far
post.

It
was
another
cross
from
Fai
that
caused
chaos
in
the
Ethiopia
penalty
area
and
allowed
the
hosts
to
edge
2-1
ahead
in
the
53rd
minute.
The
delivery
came
from
the
right
once
more,
and
Aboubakar
powered
his
header
down
into
the
ground
and
into
the
back
of
the
net.

Aboubakar’s
second
arrived
two
minutes
later,
the
striker
tucking
in
Nicolas
Moumi
Ngamaleu’s
low
cross
from
the
edge
of
the
six-yard
box.
Toko
Ekambi,
who
also
hit
the
post
with
a
header,
completed
his
own
double
with
a
powerful
low
shot
in
the
67th
minute
as
Ethiopia’s
defence
stood
off,
unable
to
handle
Cameroon’s
quality
once
more,
the
story
of
the
game
encapsulated.
