Cameroon: Yaya Banana and Stephane Bahoken scored in the win for Cameroon, but more impressively, the team allowed just one shot on goal. They’ll look to build on that against a Ghana side with some potent attackers that aren’t afraid to shoot from range. Cameroon will enter as the favorite but they are going to have to be sharp in defense.
Ghana: They really were their own worst enemy in the opener. A sloppy bit of play saw them go down two minutes in, and then after battling back to take a 2-1 lead through Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew, John Boye received a red card, and they couldn’t hold on for the win. Ghana showed too much patience in attack and had just three shots on goal, but fortunately for them they made two of them. In the second half, they did next to nothing.
Both teams score in the second half, and they settle for a draw that doesn’t help Ghana.
Pick: Cameroon 1, Ghana 1
