Hosts Cameroon are out to seal a spot in the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals today.

Now, the 33rd edition of the AFCON has seen all manner of shocks and surprises emerge, particularly Gambia’s stunning campaign in their tournament debut.

Unbeaten thus far and having overcome Guinea in the round of 16, Gambia are riding the crest of a wave.

Still, Cameroon will surely be licking their lips. While Comoros’ valiant effort in the last round was noteworthy, few would argue that facing one of the smaller footballing nations for a place in the semi-final is exactly what the hosts would have wanted.

That’s not to say it will be easy of course but the Indomitable Lions could not have asked for more favourable ties.

Date, kick-off time and venue

The AFCON quarter-final is scheduled for a 4pm GMT kick-off time on Saturday 29 January, 2022.

The Stade omnisport de Douala (otherwise known as the Japoma Stadium) in Douala will host.
