Egypt vs Cameroon: AFCON 2017 Final - Preview

Egypt vs Cameroon: AFCON 2017 Final - Preview

Egypt vs Cameroon: AFCON 2017 Final - Preview

Egypt and Cameroon are set to meet for the 10th time in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). Egypt have won 4 matches to Cameroon's 3 in that time (D2 – including a penalty shoot-out victory for Egypt).
Regardless of who wins this match, we will see a manager lift the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy at their very first attempt as this is the first Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) for both Hector Cuper and Hugo Broos.

Hector Cúper's side are the only team yet to concede a goal in the 1st half in this edition of the AFCON.

Egypt have gone 24 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) matches without defeat (W18 D6), last losing in the 2004 tournament (v Algeria) and have only conceded two goals across their last 10 matches in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Egypt will attempt to win the 4th consecutive Africa Cup of Nations in which they have competed when they face Cameroon in Sunday’s final.

Egypt, the tournament favourites from the outset in Gabon, were victorious in 2006, 2008 and 2010 before failing to qualify for the next 3 editions in 2012, 2013 and 2015.

Cameroon have upset the odds to reach the AFCON final, beating much-fancied Ghana in the last 4.

The match is a repeat of the 2008 AFCON final.

Cameroon’s team includes 2 British-based players, Hearts midfielder Arnaud Djoum and Clinton N’Jie, although the latter is on loan at Marseille from Tottenham Hotspur.

Egypt have 3 players from England’s Premier League – defender Ahmed Elmohamady (Hull) and midfielders Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal) and Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke), as well as former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah.

7-time winners Egypt earned their place in a record-equalling 9th AFCON final by beating Burkina Faso 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 semi-final draw.

Egypt’s hero in the semi-final was 44-year-old goalkeeper Essam El Hadary, whose save in the shootout means he now has a chance to win a 5th AFCON title, having won his first in 1998.

El Hadary has been in fine form in Gabon, the goal he conceded in the semi-final being the first he has let in during the tournament.

The make-up of Cameroon’s squad has changed significantly since the appointment of Hugo Broos as manager in February 2016, but he is confident his youthful line-up can cause an upset.

“In the 29 years I've been a coach I've never worked with a group like this,” said the Belgian, who is hoping to lead the Lions to a first AFCON title since 2002 and 5th overall.

“It’s a fantastic group of players both on and off the field and they deserve the final. We’ve shown from the start that we are getting better but it’s still a dream that we’ve got to the final.”
