Cameroon Will Battle Egypt For African Title Tonight

Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions and the Pharaohs of Egypt will battle for the right to be crowned AFCON 2017 champions when they meet in the final this night in Libreville, Gabon.





 Both teams are aiming to cap remarkable revivals by winning the Africa Cup of Nations when they meet in a final that few thought possible at the beginning of the 16-nation competition.

At the outset of the tournament, it was the likes of Algeria, Senegal and defending champions Ivory Coast who were considered the favourites, with Egypt no more than dark horses in their first appearance since 2010.
However, a blockbuster match between the most successful countries in the 60-year history of the competition is a fitting finale; Egypt are seven time African champions while Cameroon are four-time winners, tied with Ghana.


Egypt have a great record in finals – just one defeat in eight Cup of Nations finals and two wins out of two on such occasions against Cameroon, with the first coming on penalties in Cairo in 1986. In head-to-head stats, Egypt and Cameroon have clashed in 24 official matches. The North Africans have claimed 12 wins compared to five for their opponents, while seven matches have been drawn.

- Excerpts from This Day


The match starts at 7PM GMT.

Hmmm Cameroon, Paul Biya's regime is oppressing the English speaking zone with full military occupation. Internet shut down because there are asking to maintain the the common law and English system of education. There is civil war or genocide brewing in Cameroon. God of supernatural intervention will intervene and save the anglophones.
