  • Cameroon goalkeeper Andre Onana clears during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Afcon.

    Goalkeeper: Andre Onana

    Although the 25-year-old has not kept a clean sheet in the last three Afcon games, he is expected to keep his position as the Indomitable Lions begin their campaign in the knockout stage.

  • Nouhou Tolo of Cameroon.

    Left-back - Nouhou Tolo

    The  Seattle Sounders defender has been a consistent figure in Cameroon's team and his inclusion - bar any injury or positive Covid-19 test - is a certain bet.

  • Michael Ngadeu Ngadjui of Cameroon.

    Centre-back - Michael Ngadeu

    The defender played in all the group games without being substituted and is odds on to start in the crucial Comoros encounter.

  • Harold Desty Moukoudi of Cameroon.

    Centre-back - Harold Moukoudi

    The Saint-Etienne man is a contender to be part of Antonio Oliveira's starting XI when they take to the pitch to face the Covid-19-ravaged Islanders. 

  • Collins Fai of Cameroon.

    Right-back - Collins Fai

    Fai featured in all Cameroon's group games but was substituted at the end of the first half against Cape Verde.

    However, his solidity shown in the tournament so far should guarantee him a starting slot.

  • Pierre Kunde of Cameroon.

    Midfielder - Pierre Kunde 

    Although he was a starter against Burkina Faso and Cape Verde, Kunde was an unused substitute during the 4-1 win over Ethiopia but his hard work and dominance in midfield should convince the technical bench to have him in the XI.

  • Vincent Aboubakar, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, Eric Choupo-Moting - Cameroon

    Midfielder - Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa

    The Napoli man should start in midfield alongside Kunde in order to offer the much-needed cover to the backline as well as join in the attacks when the situation demands so.

  •  Samuel Yves Gouet of Cameroon.

    Midfielder - Samuel Gouet

    Another unused substitute against Ethiopia but his industrious nature and tactical manner of dispossessing the opponents are what the Indomitable Lions will require on Monday.

  • icolas Brice Moumi Ngamaleu of Cameroon.

    Forward - Moumi Ngamaleu

    In their last group game, Ngamaleu started before he was replaced by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting - who started from the bench in two of their last three games - in the 70th minute and the Young Boys star could start ahead of the Bayern Munich player again.

  • Karl Toko Ekambi of Cameroon.

    Forward - Karl Toko Ekambi

    He has formed quite a lethal attacking front alongside Aboubakar and that means his place in the first team is almost assured.

  • Vincent Aboubakar Cameroon Africa Cup of Nations 2021

    Striker - Vincent Aboubakar

    The top scorer so far with five goals is expected to lead the attacking department when the hosts embark on a journey to try and conquer the continent once more.
