The holders beat Guinea-Bissau 2-0 in their opening fixture.

Cameroon boss Clarence Seedorf is hoping a visit from former team-mate Samuel Eto'o will inspire the holders ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations showdown with Ghana.

Eto'o and the Dutchman were clubmates at Real Madrid, and the former Cameroon striker – who won 118 caps – dropped in on the Indomitable Lions camp as they prepared for Saturday's Group F clash in Ismailia.

Seedorf said at his pre-match press conference: "Ghana have a strong team. When my brother Eto'o visited, it was positive for the team."

Cameroon go into the game knowing a victory to go with their opening 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau would take them through to the knockout stage.

However, Ghana coach James Appiah insists his side, who drew 2-2 with Benin, will not fear the reigning champions.

He said: "We have nothing but respect for Cameroon, yet no fear. We have a young team that is motivated to achieve and win against Cameroon."
