Ghana’s Black Meteors are set to square off with Cameroon in their opening game of the U23 Africa Cup of Nations tonight.

The match is scheduled to kick off at the Cairo International Stadium at 10pm (8pm GMT).

Both teams are making their debut appearance at the continental showpiece.

Ghana qualified to the competition after edging out Tunisia in the final stage of the qualifiers while Cameroon edged Tunisia to book a place in the final eight for the tournament.

The last time the two sides met was in the 2011 All Africa Games where Ghana beat Cameroon 1-0 and went on to win the competition.

Ghana will face hosts Egypt in the second group match before playing against Mali in the final match of the group stage.
