​AFCON: Cameroon book place in knockout stage with thumping win over Ethiopia

Cameroon are through to the knockout stages of the African Cup of Nations.

The hosts of the competition are the first side to book their spot in the next round.

Cameroon claimed the berth thanks to a very impressive and dominant win over Ethiopia.

Thanks to goals from Vincent Aboubakar and Karl Toko-Ekambi, who got a brace each, Cameroon overcame an early Ethiopia goal to claim all three points.

If they can avoid defeat against Cape Verde on Monday, Cameroon will top their group.
