Guinea and Cameroon played a 1-1 draw in a tense encounter at the Charles Konan Banny Stadium in the second Group C game of the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Côte d’Ivoire 2023.


Guinea took an early lead through Mohamed Bayo. He was given all the space and time in the world and gleefully pounced on a loose ball inside the penalty box beyond the reach of Fabrice Ondoa to put Guinea in the lead against the five-time champion, Cameroon.


Guinea captain Francois Kamano was shown the marching orders after penalizing Cameroonian midfielder Olivier Ntcham inside the added-on time in the first half.


The Video Assistant Referee reviewed the situation, and an initial yellow card was changed to a red card by Referee Mutaz Ibrahim.


Cameroon took advantage of the numerical disadvantage of the Guineans in the second half.


The Indomitable Lions got the equalizer six minutes into the second half following Frank Magri’s superb aerial ability to pounce onto a free kick to render the game 1-1.


Cameroon will play defending champion Senegal on Friday, January 19, at the Charles Konan Banny Stadium.
