Cameroon bid to retain their Olympic football title
Defending champions Cameroon have made the perfect start to their Olympic qualifying campaign for next year's Games in Athens after beating Mali 2-0 on Sunday.

Victory in the game in Yaounde puts the Cameroonian side at the top of Group B with two wins out of two.

Wansi Daniel opened the scoring for the home side right on the half-time whistle.

Webo Achille sealed it 10 minutes into the second half.

Ivory Coast and Mali are tied for second place, on three points each, after the Ivorians crushed DR Congo 4-1 in Abidjan.

Djedou Kabran opened the scoring on 32 minutes and 5 minutes later Antonin Koutouan put Ivory Coast further ahead.

They again increased their lead just after the break through Bakary Soro.

DR Congo's consolation came from Kabanga Tshamala on 56 minutes but Ivory Coast extended their lead to 4-1 thanks to another late goal from Kabran.

In Group C, Morocco and Angola fought out a goalless draw in Luanda.

The result means that it is still all to play for in the group with Morocco, Angola and now Ethiopia all with one win apiece.

Ethiopia's victory came at home in Addis Ababa on Sunday - 1-0 over Uganda.

Taffesse Pesfaye scored the only goal of the match in the 16th minute to give his side some valuable points.
