Host country Cameroon kicked off the CHAN 2020 (African Nations Championship) with a short win (1-0) over Zimbabwe on Saturday at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium.
The local-based indomitable lions delivered at home in front of their fans who were allowed to attend ther stadium.
The men of Martin Ndtoungou Mpile fought against the Warriors of Zimbabwe but failed to score in the first half as Muduhwa and his teammates were solid at the back.

And that was the winning-goal as the scoreline ended 1-0 for Cameroon. A good way to start the CHAN 2020.
