Cameroon and Namibia have finalised the line-up for the next Africa Cup of Nations after they secured their places in the tournament with the completion of Group C on Tuesday night.

The Indomitable Lions secured top spot in the three-team group thanks to a 3-0 triumph over Burundi at the Roumde Adjia Stadium in Garoua.

Cameroon weathered a difficult first 45 minutes in which goalkeeper Andre Onana was forced into several key saves, but a goal inside the opening minute of the second half from Bryan Mbuemo settled their nerves.

Christopher Wooh made it 2-0 soon after with his first goal for the national team, and veteran Vincent Aboubakar put the cherry on top with a scruffy goal in injury time for a final score of 3-0.

The result saw Cameroon finish top of the log with seven points, while Namibia ended second with five points and joined the five-time African champions in qualification. The Brave Warriors will appear at the Nations Cup for just the fourth time.

The complete list of AFCON qualifiers: Ivory Coast (hosts), Morocco, Algeria, South Africa, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Tunisia, Egypt, Zambia, Equatorial Guinea, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde, Mali, Guinea, Ghana, Angola, Tanzania, Mozambique, DR Congo, Mauritania, Gambia, Cameroon and Namibia.
