ISMAILIA, Egypt, June 25 (Reuters) - Five-times winners and holders Cameroon put a pre-tournament pay dispute behind them to beat rank outsiders Guinea Bissau 2-0 in their opening match at the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday.

Angola salvaged a surprise but deserved 1-1 draw against an uninspired Tunisia after Djalma Campos cancelled out a Youssef Msakni penalty in their Africa Cup of Nations opener on Monday.

Mali and Mauritania were meeting later on Monday in the second half of a double bill at the Suez Stadium.
