Cameroon, Mali set for tough duel

20 January 2015, 17:11

Malabo - Cameroon and Mali are set to meet in an interesting 2015 CAF African Cup of Nations Group D opener at the Estadio de Malabo in Equatorial Guinea on Tuesday night, SuperSport reports.

Kick-off is at 8pm Nigerian time.

Both sides will aim for three points to launch their campaign for glory in the 30th edition of the continental showpiece. In their previous meetings, both sides have already met twice at the Afcon.

Their first meeting was in 1972 which ended with a 1-1 draw while Cameroon defeated Mali 3-0 in the semifinal of the 2002 edition.

Although the captain, Stephane Mbia, will miss the opening tie due to suspension after receiving a red card against Ivory Coast during the final match of the qualifiers, he said it’s important they get ready for the tournament.
