Hosts Cameroon became the first team to qualify for the last 16 at the Africa Cup of Nations with

an emphatic 4-1 win over Ethiopia in Group A.

Forwards Vincent Aboubakar and Karl Toko-Ekambi scored twice each after Ethiopia took an early lead in Yaounde.

Hotessa Dawa slid home after four minutes but the hosts were level after eight as Toko-Ekambi headed home.

In the second half, Aboubakar struck twice, and Lyon’s Toko-Ekambi then added his second after 67 minutes.

After scoring two penalties as the Burkinabe were beaten 2-1 on the opening day,

Cameroon captain Aboubakar is the tournament’s top scorer  with his header and tap-in taking him to four goals.

He now has a record of five goals from 10 Nations Cup games, a marked improvement from his first eight games,

which produced just one goal the winner itself in the 2017 final.
