African Nations Cup concludes with magical final but plenty of questions

LIBREVILLE, Gabon -- Sport has a habit of forcing you into compromises. When Vincent Aboubakar volleyed in the most dramatic of tournament winners, doing it in the most raw and visceral of football atmospheres at Stade de L'Amitie, few people watching could say in good faith that they were not swept away by the moment. Cameroon's fifth Africa Cup of Nations title was surprising by any measure, a patchwork team of relative unknowns visibly growing in confidence and momentum to achieve something...

Cameroon take 2017 African Nations Cup crown as Aboubakar nets stunner

LIBREVILLE -- Three thoughts from Cameroon's 2-1 win over Egypt, which sees them crowned African Nations Cup champions.

1. Aboubakar's stunning goal gives Cameroon the title

Cameroon are African Nations Cup champions for the fifth time, and they could not have won a more unlikely title than this. Nobody gave Hugo Broos' remoulded side, missing a number of key players, a chance of coming home from Gabon with the trophy, but a brilliant 88th-minute volley from substitute Vincent Aboubakar turned this...

Ondoa vs. El-Hadary a microcosm of Cameroon vs. Egypt in AFCON final

You have to stretch the mind back only two years to recall an African Nations Cup final that became the tale of a goalkeeper; in that case, it was Ivory Coast's Boubacar Barry. This time around, it might well be a story of two. Five of the past nine finals have been settled by penalty shootouts, and if that is to be the fate of Sunday's meeting between Egypt and Cameroon, whoever is the hero will bring his own compelling narrative.

Between Egypt's posts will be Essam El-Hadary, the remarkable...

Broos masterminds Cameroon's unlikely final run, silences doubters

LIBREVILLE, Gabon -- Hugo Broos laughs as he recounts the tale: "A few months ago someone came up to me and said: 'Coach, you're a strange man'. I said 'Yeah, why?' He said: 'Because if someone comes to you and proposes something, you always say yes, yes, yes, but you never do it."

At 64, Broos holds few fears about doing things his own way and the results have been spectacular; that his Cameroon side face Egypt in the African Nations Cup final on Sunday is a scenario nobody really saw coming.

Can anyone stop Egypt from sealing African Nations Cup glory?

Egypt celebrate Mohamed Salah's goal.
Egypt are now 23 games unbeaten on the continent's biggest stage.

GABON -- The African Nations Cup is down to the final four, but what can we expect from the matchups?

Burkina Faso vs. Egypt (Libreville, Wednesday)

Can anyone stop Hector Cuper's Egypt side from winning their eighth African Nations Cup? That might seem a sensationalist question but most things are going in their favour at this tournament and, now 23 games unbeaten on the continent's biggest stage if you allow for three consecutive non-qualifications, there is a sense that they will take some stopping...

Ghana should be wary as Indomitable Lions of Cameroon bare their teeth

Cameroon have reached the African Nations Cup semifinals after a dramatic shootout win over Senegal.

It might come as something of a surprise to the occasional followers of African football that Cameroon compete in the semifinal of the African Nations Cup this Thursday for the first time in nine years.

Their frequent World Cup trips might suggest they are a much more dominant force on the continent. Indeed, the Indomitable Lions are often held up as the pinup boys of the African game.

But despite qualifying for both South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014, the truth is the lion's roar has not been much...
