Cameroon lift the African Cup of Nations

Cameroon have won the AFCON after a gruelling encounter in Libreville against Egypt.

The Pharoes took the lead thanks to a fine finish from Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny.

Cameroon then eased back into the game and equalised on 60 minutes courtesy of a power header from Lyon’s Nicolas Nkoulou.

The winner came at the death when Vincent Aboubakar slotted home despite the attentions of two Egyptian defenders.

The Indomitable Lions in ecstasy, The Pharoes in despair.

Cameroon 2-1 Egypt.
