Cameroon, Guinea share spoils in Cup of Nations draw



Vincent Aboubakar injury not as bad as first feared
ESPN's Ed Dove says that Cameroon international Vincent Aboubakar's injury is not as bad as first feared ahead of their opener against Guinea on Monday.

Cameroon came from behind to share the points with 10-man Guinea in a 1-1 stalemate in the first game for both teams at the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Ivory Coast on Monday.

Frank Magri equalised early in the second half after Guinea had taken a 10th minute lead through Mohamed Bayo but then had captain Francois Kamano sent off.

The draw at the Charles Konan Banny Stadium in the Ivorian capital followed the opening Group C game where holders Senegal easily disposed of Gambia 3-0.

Cameroon were without Andre Onana in goal but he did arrive ahead of the game after featuring for Manchester United in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.
