Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations final sees Cameroon square off against Egypt. Cameroon surprised everyone by getting to the finals, and they’re spoiling for a fight.
No African soccer team has ever reached the World Cup semi-finals. For the 2018 tournament in Russia, five strong teams could change that. But it's not going to be an easy feat.
Egypt and Russia have signed a contract to build Egypt's first nuclear power plant during a visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Russian leader also voiced a willingness to resume direct flights to Egypt.
Two second-half goals completed a stunning comeback for Cameroon against overwhelming favorites Egypt. Just as the game seemed to be heading for extra-time, the underdogs scored late on to record a famous victory.
The African Nations Cup was plagued by low scoring, the usual empty seats and apathy among the people of host nation Gabon. But on the field, Cameroon's surprise success gave us a wonderful narrative yet again.
