Five Cameroon v Mali facts

Malabo - Five facts for the Africa Cup of Nations Group D match between Cameroon and Mali in Equatorial Guinea capital Malabo Tuesday:

-- The countries have met twice before in the Cup of Nations with a 1-1 draw in 1972 followed by a 3-0 triumph for Cameroon in a 2002 semi-final that featured a Salomon Olembe brace inside eight minutes.

-- Veteran Volker Finke wants to become the second German coach of a Cameroon title-winning team after Winfried Schafer achieved the feat 13 years ago through a penalty shootout win over Senegal.

-- Former Poland World Cup midfielder Henryk Kasperczak is having a second spell as Mali coach having lifted the Eagles to fourth place in 2002 when they hosted the Cup of Nations.

-- Mali and Roma midfielder Seydou Keita is set to play at his seventh Cup of Nations. Retired Cameroon defender Rigobert Song holds the record with eight appearances.

-- Cameroon reserve goalkeeper Pierre Sylvain Abogo from Tonnerre Yaounde celebrates his 17th birthday on January 27, making him the youngest footballer at the 2015 Cup of Nations.
