Cameroon drew with Guinea which means that all the teams in Group D are join into the final group games level on the same points. Apart from Cameroon and Guinea, the other two teams in Group D are Ivory Coast and Mali.

All of the group matches have been 1-1 draws, meaning that there will be a lot of excitement if Wednesday's matches are identical.

The Indomitable Lions looked like they were in control of the group when Benjamin Moukandjo fired directly from a corner to give Cameroon a lead in the 13th minute.

Just before the break, in the 42nd minute, Ibrahima Traore equalised with a shot from around 20 yards.

The Indomitable Lions goalkeeper had a moment of madness down his end of the pitch and was lucky not to concede a penalty.

Cameroon did most of the attacking in the second half and were the more likely of the two to snatch the victory, which was not meant to be, and the match finished 1-1.

Cameroon will face Ivory Coast on Wednesday, with Guinea playing Mali. These are several possible outcomes for the Wednesday's matches:

  • A victory would be enough to take any of the four teams to the next stage;
  • A draw may be made to decide to see who qualifies for the quarter-finals if one of the games is a win, and one of them a draw;
  • If both games finish as draws, but one of them is higher scoring, then that one will be the one where both sides qualify for the final eight.

Cameroon have very good track record in the African Cup of Nations; they were four-time champions, last time in 2002.

And they are now without two of their legendary players.

Their striker, Samuel Eto'o, who is now 33, retired from the international #Football last year and sadly did not join the Cameroon squad. Eto'o is the most decorated African player of all- time, having won the African Player of the year award a record four times: in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2010. He is also the all -time leading goal scorer with 18 goals in African Cup of Nations matches.

The West Ham midfielder Alex Song, 29, also chose to hang his national boots.

Wednesday night will be interesting!
