With AFCON coming up, these friendlies are more than just a preparatory match for both teams

Cameroon are one of the top sides for this year’s AFCON. They haven’t been in the best of form lately with draws against Libya and losses to Russia and Senegal in the last five games. Cameroon have a strong and experienced squad with players like Anguissa, Mughe, Aboubakar, Wooh and Castelletto playing in the top leagues of Europe. They will look to tweak their combinations in this match with Mbeumo out of AFCON due to injury.

Zambia are ranked 84th in FIFA rankings and people may think it would be an easy rollover match for Cameroon but Zambia are a very strong team when on song. Last year they defeated Ivory Coast and came close to upsetting Egypt as well. Zambia are one of the dark horses in the tournament and will be looking to test themselves against quality opposition.

Location: National Heroes Stadium, Zambia 


Zambia (in all competitions): W-D-L-W-L

Cameroon (in all competitions): W-L-L-W-D

Player to Watch

Andre Anguissa (Cameroon)

Andre Anguissa was the star of Napoli last season in their Serie A triumph. He has been sensational in the last couple of years and his form is key to Cameroon’s success. Although he hasn’t been in his last season’s form but still has a big role to play. Cameroon’s midfield is heavily dependent on him. 

Patson Zaka (Zambia)

Patson Zaka is the main player of Zambia in the attack. He has been in great form for Leicester City this season with four goals from seven appearances. Zaka has that electric pace which can cause big problems for Cameroon defenders on counters.
