Egypt to Face Cameroon in 2017 African Cup of Nations Final

Egypt to Face Cameroon in 2017 African Cup of Nations Final

They will now meet Egypt, who won yesterday's semi-final against Burkina Faso, in Sunday's (February 5) final.

Of course, the entire squad celebrated accordingly, with footage subsequently emerging of several Egyptian players enjoying a postmatch belly dance in the dressing room.

Egypt and Cameroon are easily two of the most successful teams at AFCON.

Ghana have qualified to the semi-finals for the sixth consecutive time and are hoping to win their first title since 1982.

The Cameroonians knew they had their work cut out for them, so they approached the match with the required briskness.

Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui opened the scoring in the 72 minute and Christian Bassogog confirmed the victory deep into injury time at the Stade de Franceville in Gabon.


Avram Grant responded by introducing Asamoah Gyan in the 75th minute, as they looked for a way back into the encounter.

"In the group stage, Cameroon played well and, against Senegal, they were very impressive, so the semi-final is going to be tough", Grant said.

"I have a team of 23 friends not players, who are motivated to play and die for each other".

"Now we will prepare for the final and try to reverse what happened in 2008". "We started well, but in the second half we suffered a bit". Congratulations to them, but the better side lost.

Egypt have three players from England's Premier League - defender Ahmed Elmohamady (Hull) and midfielders Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal) and Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke), as well as former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah. Bringing in Aristide Bance in the 76th minute of the game was an inspired decision. - Cameroon come into this game without a goal in their last two AFCON matches, failing to score with any of their last 23 shots in the tournament.

Egypt has enjoyed a remarkable AFCON 2017.
