The fifth trophy for the Lions or the eighth on for Egypt ? It is indeed, a very special day for both nations that will face each other today in the final game of the African Cup of Nations.
Cameroon will be targeting its first trophy since 15 years. The Lions didn’t play the final game since 2008 when they lost against this same opponent, Egypt, in Accra.
Egypt is still the worst rival for Cameroon. It’s enough to say that the Lions have only lost two finals :In 2008 and in 1986 against the Pharaohs!
On the other hand, Egypt won all its previous AFCON finals. After failing to be present in this competition in the last three editions, Egypt made a great come-back and reached the final game in Gabon.
The possible line-ups for this game will be as follows :
Cameroon : Ondoa – Fai, Ngadeu, Teikeu, Oyongo – Mandjeck, Zoua, Siani – Bassogog, Ndip Tambe, Moukandjo (cap)
Egypt : El-Hadary (cap) – Elmohamady, Gabr, Hegazy, Gedo – Hamed, Saied, I. Salah – M. Salah, Fahmy, Hassan
