Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions have been drawn into Group J alongside Namibia, Kenya, and Zimbabwe for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

Scheduled to take place in the months of September, October, and November 2024, the team, led by coach Marc Brys, aims to secure their 22nd appearance in this biennial competition. Their performance in the last edition in Cote D’Ivoire was less than spectacular, so are eager to make a strong showing this time.

Namibia poses a challenge for Cameroon. The Brave Warriors defeated them in the previous Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. Having advanced from the group stage for the first time in 2023, Namibia is determined to build on their recent successes and secure their fifth appearance in the biennial tournament.

Kenya and Zimbabwe, both absent from the last qualifiers due to a FIFA ban resulting from government intervention, are equally motivated. With five and six previous participations respectively, these teams are eyeing a return to the continental stage. For Kenya, the last AFCON appearance was in Egypt 2019, and Zimbabwe hasn’t competed in Africa’s premier soccer event since Cameroon 2021.

The draw for the 2025 AFCON, hosted by Morocco, has taken place this Thursday, July 4, in Johannesburg, South Africa. The 48 participating teams were divided into twelve groups of four each, comprising the 44 direct entrants and the four winners from the preliminary round.
