Song to set new African Nations mark

CAIRO, Jan 24 (Reuters) - Rigobert Song will set a new mark for the most matches played at the African Nations Cup finals when Cameroon meet Togo in Cairo on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old, who recently won his 100th cap, will be playing his 25th tournament game, breaking the previous record of 24 held by the former Ivory Coast goalkeeper Alain Gouamene.

The Cameroon captain has not missed a game at the tournament for his country since 1996 and is playing in his sixth finals.

The Galatasaray defender made his 100th international appearance in Saturday's 3-1 win over Angola in their opening Group B match.

He became the seventh African to achieve the feat, but the first from outside north Africa.

Gouamene's mark could also be surpassed at this Nations Cup by Tunisian captain Riadh Bouazizi and his Nigerian counterpart Austin Okocha.

Bouazizi marked his 20th game in six different tournaments with a goal against Zambia in Alexandria on Sunday.

Okocha, playing in his last tournament, missed Nigeria's opening match against Ghana in Port Said on Monday but has 20 previous appearances to his name.

Gouamene had another record matched at this tournament in Egypt -- his participation in seven different finals having been equalled by the host team's striker Hossam Hassan.

Hassan, 39, has played in 18 matches since he first competed at the 1986 finals - the last time his country hosted the Nations Cup finals.
