Cameroon beats Ghana 2-0 to play Egypt for AFCON 2017 Title
BBC – Cameroon will face Egypt in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations final after two second-half strikes saw off Ghana.
Both sides had gone close to breaking the deadlock before Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui took advantage of atrocious defending from a free-kick to lash in the opener in the 72nd minute.
With seconds remaining Christian Bassogog sealed victory when he applied a deft finish to a counter-attack.
Ghana went close through Wakaso Mubarak and Christian Atsu.
Panathinaikos midfielder Wakaso tested keeper Fabrice Ondoa will a brilliant bending free-kick, and Newcastle’s flying winger Atsu saw his angled strike drift past Cameroon’s upright by inches.
