Egypt’s Pharaohs have lost to their rival team Cameroon 2-1 in a tense African Cup of Nations final match.

The first goal of the match was scored by Egypt’s Mohamed Elneny at the 22nd minute. The Arsenal player managed to find the goal in a narrow opening of Cameroon’s defense, setting up early celebrations across Egypt.

However, Cameroon quickly equalized in the second half. Looking fully revived after half time, Cameroon remained dominant after its first goal. Cameroon’s Vincent Abobakar scored the second goal for his team just a few minutes before the original time of the match conlcuded.

This year’s African Cup of Nations marked Egypt’s first since 2010. Despite a seven-year absence, Egypt is the most successful nation in the cup’s history with seven titles, followed by Cameroon that now has five titles and Ghana with four titles.
