86’If we don’t find the winner in the next four minutes or so, we will go straight into extra time. If there’s no winner after 120 minutes of football, there will be penalties.
84’Nkoulou gives away a free-kick in his own half. Free-kick to Egypt, but Cameroon do well to stop Egypt.
81’We’re into the final nine minutes of this Afcon final. Cameroon have looked a lot better in the second half, but they will need to bury those chances before it’s too late.

56’Some time wasting tactics by El Hadary. He takes too long before restarting play, but the referee hasn’t seen anything wrong that.

31’Nkoulou is on standby to come on for Teikeu.
29’It looks like Teikeu will not be able to continue here tonight. He’s down again and has already signalled to his bench that he can’t continue.
26’Teikeu is injured and he will receive medical attention. Both coaches use this opportunity to fine tune their tactics.
24’I did highlight earlier that Egypt would expose Cameroon’s defense. The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon now have to regroup.

22’GOOOOAAAALLL!!! Mohamed El Nenny is left unmarked in the box, and he has all the time to turn and face Ondoa before firing into the roof. Egypt 1-0 Cameroon.
20’Cameroon are pushing numbers forward and leaving a few players behind to defend. It might backfire if they lose concentration, especially because Egypt are quick on counter-attacks.
17’Hamed goes over the ball against Moukandjo, and the referee doesn’t like he sees. Free-kick to Cameroon. A chance for the Indomitable Lions to take the game to Egypt.
15’The Egyptians look very happy to sit back and let Cameroon have the ball.
13’Poor decision making lets Cameroon down in the final third. Egypt look solid at the back, perhaps because their opponents haven’t been able to execute those important touches.
11’El Hadary and Fabrice Ondoa have no doubt been at their best in this year’s tournament, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top tonight.
9’El Mohamady whips a cross into the box in an effort to find his teammates, but the cross is too close to Ondoa, who goes up unchallenged.
7’SIANI PULLS THE TRIGGER!!! Bassogog does well to eliminate his marker on the far side, and he lays it back to Siani, who shot takes a deflection. El Hadary gathers easily.
5’Both sides are still throwing punches at each other, but Egypt look very dangerous in the final third. In fact, they should have been 1-0 up.
2’EARLY CHANCE FOR EGYPT!!! Salah releases El Said, who fires towards goal, but Ondoa makes a fine save.
