Favourites Egypt and Cameroon meet in ANC

ACCRA, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Two more pre-tournament favourites, Cameroon and Egypt enter the African Nations Cup fray on Tuesday, a day after the Ivory Coast gave notice of their potential in the tournament.

Cameroon's Indomitable Lions go head-to-head with the defending champions in the opening Group C match in Kumasi in a match that could ultimately decide top place in the standings.

The two renew a long-standing rivalry in the competition and will seek to match the winning starts made by Ivory Coast, Mali and Morocco on Monday.

Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou scored a brilliant individual goal to hand the Ivorians a 1-0 win over fellow contenders Nigeria in their opening Group B match in Sekondi on Monday.

A power failure saw the floodlights go out before the second game at the new Essipon stadium but after a 12 minute delay, Mali and Benin took to the field to complete their encounter.

A penalty from Frederic Kanoute just after halftime settled all three points in favour of the Malians.

But Monday's top achiever proved the up and coming Morocco midfielder Soufiane Alloudi, who took 28 minutes to complete a hat-trick when his team thrashed Namibia 5-1 in Accra.

Zambia play Sudan on Tuesday in the other Group C match in Kumasi, marking the return of former African champions Sudan after a 32-year absence from the finals.
