AFCON 2017: Cameroon Beat Egypt 2-1 To Lift Cup


The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon were minutes ago crowned winners of the 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) after overcoming an early setback to beat the Pharaohs of Egypt 2-1 at the Stade de l’Amitie in Libreville.

Goals from Nicolas N’Koulou and Vincent Aboubakar sealed a remarkable comeback victory for Cameroon.

The Egyptians had taken the lead in the 22nd after Mohamed Elneny was played into space in the box and he scored with a shot to beat the goalkeeper at his near post! The first half ended on that note.

On the restart Nicolas N’Koulou brought the Indomitable Lions level on 59 minutes – the defender rising high to head home a cross from Benjamin Moukandjo and make it 1-1!

In the 88th minute a fantastic goal from Vincent Aboubakar sealed victory for the Cameroonians. He had controlled a long ball, chipped it over a defender and volleyed home to break the heart of the Pharaohs. (News Express)
