The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon have qualified for the finals of the 2017 AFCON after beating the Black Stars of Ghana 2-0. The first goal that made Cameroonian fans far and near shouting victory came around the 72nd minute by Michael Ngadeu Ngadui. The second goal at extra time was scored by the agile Bassogog leaving the score board at 2-0 in favor of the boys of Hugo Broos.
The numerous efforts by the Black Stars were fruitless as Cameroon’s goalie, Fabrice Ondoa stopped any shot directed to his goalpost. The highly contested match between the two big names in African football comes after nine years that Ghana stopped Cameroon from grabbing the highly solicited cup.
As the standings read, Cameroon will face the Pharaohs of Egypt at the finals come February 4. It is worth recalling that Cameroon has recorded four cup titles at the AFCON while Egypt counts seven. In the meantime fans from both countries are blowing trumpets already for their teams to win, but who bears the weight of 2017’s biggest football jamboree in the continent will be known on Sunday February 4.
