Afcon: Cameroon defeats Egypt 2-1


Well, what a tournament❗ Cameroon's inexperienced team made it to the final after being described the worst in a generation En route they beat the mighty Senegal and Ghana Egypt's story makes even better copy - 3 AFCON's in a row from 2006-10 and then failed to qualify 3 in a row And this year they qualify and made the finals no half-measures for Egypt clearly

Mohamed Elneny of Egypt scored first in the 22' with some nifty work sidefooting a rising shot that beat Ondoa at the near post. Cameroon had plenty of the ball, especially in the 2nd half, with their sub Nkoulou providing the crucial equalizer at 60' with a sublime header. But the magician of the day was Aboubakar surely - he slotted a superb goal⚽ at 88'

Cameroon won AFCON last in 2002 and it is celebration time again now after a long wait❗ Cameroon are AFCON 2017 Champions Bitter disappointment for Héctor Cúper's Egypt
