The Africa Cup of Nations has reached the last batch of group-stage games and the hosts, along with their Group A rivals, will be the first nation to complete their opening fixtures.

Cameroon have impressed so far as one of the more attack-minded, adventurous sides of the tournament - putting four goals past Ethiopia certainly helped in that regard last time out. They are on six points, with Burkina Faso and Cabo Verde both on three and Ethiopia pointless after two games.

There’s still everything to play for though, for all four sides: Second place guarantees progression to the last 16, but four third-placed teams from the groups will also go through.

As such, a final-game win could prove all-important, particularly with the amount of late points which have been won across the last week or so at the tournament.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Monday’s games.

Who is playing and what time are the matches?

The final two Group A games will be played simultaneously, kicking off at 4pm GMT.

Cameroon face Cabo Verde in Yaounde.

Burkina Faso against Ethiopia will be played in Bafoussam.
