Cameroon and Egypt will contend for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations crown in Libreville on Sunday after the Indomitable Lions defeated Ghana 2-0 to book their first final appearance since 2008.
Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui netted the opener before Christian Bassogog converted a last-minute counter-attack to seal Cameroon’s spot in the 2017 final, where seven-time winners Egypt promise to offer a stiff challenge.
It’s difficult to pick a favourite between the two teams heading into Sunday’s crunch decider, although Cameroon manager Hugo Broos illustrated he and his side’s happiness just to have made the finale:
“It is a real dream for us to get to the final,” said Broos. “Ghana have more experience than us – look at what they have done in recent tournaments. But since the start of this tournament we have shown we keep going right to the end in every game.
“I am very happy, especially for the team. They are an exemplary group on and off the field and they deserve to be in the final.”
