Cameroon are set to take on Guinea-Bissau in their first 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group F match on Tuesday.

Kick-off is at 19h00 CAT.

The encounter will take place at the Ismailia Stadium in the Egyptian city of Ismailia.

The Indomitable Lions are making their 19th appearance in the AFCON finals after finishing second in their qualifying group earlier this year.

The defending AFCON champions will look to China-based forward Christian Bassogog, who won the 2017 Afcon Player of the Tournament award.

Cameroon head coach Clarence Seedorf will be looking to ensure that the Indomitable Lions start their title defence with a victory.

Meanwhile, Guinea-Bissau are making their second appearance in the AFCON finals having finished at the top of their qualifying group.

The African Wild Dogs' dangerman is Nottingham Forest midfielder Pele, who is very influential on the field of play.

Guinea-Bissau head coach Baciro Cande will be looking to ensure that the African Wild Dogs start their group stage campaign with a win.

This will be the fourth meeting between Cameroon and Guinea-Bissau.

The Indomitable Lions have registered three victories against the African Wild Dogs.
