Afcon 2017: Cameroon beats Ghana 2-0 to set up Egypt final

Cameroon beat Ghana 2-0 to set up a final of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations with Egypt.

Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui scored in the 72nd minute and Christian Bassogog netted in an injury-time counter-attack to seal the victory for the Indomitable Lions.

Ghana were close to scoring through Wakaso Mubarak and Christian Atsu but they failed to beat Cameroon goal keeper Fabrice Ondoa.

The Indomitable Lions had a couple of chances earlier with Adolphe Teikeu’s header being cleared off the line by Harrison Afful after Bassogog had won a corner.

Cameroon continued to press through Robert Ndip Tambe and Benjamin Moukandjo but were denied by Ghana’s goalkeeper Brimah Razak.

The four times African champions defended extremely well nullifying the threat of Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew-and, later on, substitute Asamoah Gyan till they sealed their win.

Meanwhile Ghana will take on Burkina Faso in the third place play off on 4th February, 2017.
