Angola to warm up against Cameroon



Bafana Bafana’s upcoming African Nations Cup opponent Angola play a second pre-tournament warm-up match inside five days when they meet Cameroon on Wednesday evening.

The match at the Estadio Tundavala in Lubango follows a 1-1 draw with the Gambia in Benguela on Saturday.

Both the Angola and Cameroon’s squads are made up of home-based players.

Angola have been preparing for the last weeks at Lubango, seeking to restore fitness since the end of the local GiraBola season in November.

The squad is made up of 24-home based players and striker Geraldo from Brazil and about half of them are expected to make the final selection for the tournament in South Africa.

Angola’s league season closed last month, which means the training camp is vital to keep up the fitness of players who have not had any competitive action over the last weeks.

The friendly against Cameroon will be followed by a match against Rwanda on Sunday.

But Angola’s contingent of foreign-based players will only join up with the squad for their second training camp in Portugal just after New Year.

Angola will then have a fourth warm-up game against Nigeria before arriving in South Africa for the Nations Cup, where they meet Morocco, South Africa and the Cape Verde Islands in Group A.
