Cameroon Team News
Cameroon has a number of European-based superstars in their camp, and with the competition already in full swing, Conceicao is certain to unveil a familiar lineup on Monday.
Collins Fai, Harold Moukoudi, Michael Ngadeu, and Seattle Sounders full-back Nouhou Tolo are expected to line up in defence, with Andre Onana between the sticks.
Andre Zambo Anguissa, Karl Toko Ekambi, and Nicolas Moumie Ngamaleu have started all three games for the Indomitable Lions so far, and the trio should be charged with winning the midfield fight once more.
Aboubakar has played a key role in Cameroon’s success thus far, scoring five goals in three games, and the 30-year-old attacker will surely be one to watch.
With his goal against Cape Verde last time out, the former Porto player has tied Samuel Eto’o for the distinction of being the only Cameroonian to score in three consecutive AFCON matches, and he will aim to write his name in the nation’s history books on Monday.
Comoros Team News
Multiple COVID-19 cases have been recorded in Comoros, jeopardising their preparations for Monday’s historic last-16 match.
Head coach Abdou, as well as goalkeeping duo Moyadh Ousseni and Ali Ahmada, have all got the virus, and while a new round of tests will be conducted before the game, their participation is still in question.
Salim Ben Boina was forced off the field with an injury just 26 minutes into the game against Ghana last time out, but because to the COVID situation in the team, the 30-year-old goalkeeper might be pushed back into action.
Ben, who has 16 goals in 31 games for the Coelacanth, scored his first goal against Ghana in the competition, and we anticipate the Red Star Belgrade forward to lead the line once more.
