AFCON 2021: Final Group A Table, And Results As Cameroon And Burkina Faso Qualified For Round 16

The last round of group games in Cameroon's 33rd Africa Cup of Nations has begun, with Cameroon extending their lead in Group A with a draw.

After defeating Ethiopia 4-1 to advance to the next round, hosts Cameroon increased their points in the Ground A log by one point after drawing with 90th Cape Verde in their last Group A match.

Aboubakar, the host's skipper, put the hosts ahead 39 minutes into the game with his fifth goal of the season. Cape Verde equalized only 8 minutes into the second half via Mendes Rodriguez, who never ceased in his management.

Aboubakar squandered Cameroon's clear-cut opportunity midway in the second half, as Cape Verde held on to the Draw to create a qualification opportunity for themselves.

Burkina Faso also advanced to the next round following a well-deserved draw with Ethiopia. Bayala's first-half score seemed to be enough to sink weak Ethiopia, who fell 4-1 against Cameroon, but Kebede's second-half penalty convert ensured Ethiopia also had a point in the AFCON 2021, as they exited on a decent note.

Although Burkina Faso and Cape Verde ended with four points apiece, Burkina Faso's 1-0 victory against Cape Verde in their second match placed them ahead of the Blue Sharks in the final Group A game, behind Leader Cameroon by three points each. In Group A, only Ethiopia refused to win a single match.

Cameroon will now play the third-placed nation in Group C, D, or E. Finally, Cape Verde may be considered one of the finest third-placed countries

Who do you believe Cameroon should play in the round of 16? There are no two ways about it, they will play a lower-ranked side, but Sudan might be the team based on their tournament records.
