The Indomitable Lions came into the 2021 AFCON tournament in great form having won four matches in a row across all competitions.
“This victory was important for us, in order to start the tournament well," Cameroon head coach Antonio Conceiçao said after their win over Burkina Faso.
"We played at home, in front of our home crowd. The players played a positive game. We started the game controlling the opposing team, we had possession but they managed to score. 
"This goal could have weakened the team but it reacted well. We were able to reverse the match. I think it's a deserved victory because in the second half we had more chances to score."

Meanwhile, Ethiopia succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Cape Verde in their opening Group A match which took place on January 9.
Walia Ibex are now winless in their last four matches in this competition having recorded three consecutive defeats and one draw. 
The defeat to Cape Verde ended Ethiopia's four-match unbeaten run across all competitions having registered two successive draws and one win.
The last meeting between Cameroon and Ethiopia was on 13 January 2016.
The Indomitable Lions were held to a 0-0 draw by Walia Ibex in the 2016 African Nations Championship match which was played at the Stade Huye in Rwanda.
