If I decided to use another word other than indomitable, that would be an understatement. This is what the Indomitable Lions deed in their match against the very unfortunate Ethiopian football team. The second game if Group A in the African Cup of Nations tournament pitted Cameroon who are the hosts against Ethiopia. With just four minutes into the game, Bekele put the Ethiopian team ahead. Ethiopia Show cased a superb play as well as Cameroon as they came level after Karl Toko Ekambi's strike giving relieve headed to the first half break.
After resuming for the second half, Cameroon pressed more and more towards the Ethiopian goal and the deadlock was broken by their captain Vincent Abubakar. Cameroon further punched a hole in the already deteriorating dream of the Ethiopian team as Vincent Abubakar struck again and further opened the gap between the two teams. In the 67th minute Karl Toko put the last nail on the Ethiopian team's coffin. A brace from the two Cameroon star players was enough to guarantee them a firm spot on the last sixteen knockout stage.
However, Ethiopia will battle it out for the third position against Burkina Faso who beat Cape Verde in yet another thrilling Group A match.
