Cameroon 2-0 Ghana

Hard luck Ghana. It's 34 years and counting since they last won the tournament.

As for Cameroon, they last won Afcon in 2002 - can they 14 years of hurt against Egypt on Sunday?

Join us here for unrivalled coverage of the 2017 Afcon final.


Cameroon 2-0 Ghana

Hugo Broos' has a scent for success.

Cameroon will face Egypt in the 2017 Afcon final.

Hey, and no pens needed.

GOAL - Cameroon 2-0 Ghana

Christian Bassogog

Some people are on the pitch...they think it's all over...

It is now!

Christian Bassogog leads a two-against-one break. He runs through on goal and produces a deft flick to beat the onrushing Razak Brimah.

That, I would say, is that.

Cameroon 1-0 Ghana

There are four mins of it but Ghana have a free-kick...

Cameroon 1-0 Ghana

Wakaso Mubarak tries to find one of either Asamoah Gyan or Andre Ayew but finds neither - his team-mates on the bench are livid. Livid, I tell thee.

Time running out for Ghana.

Cameroon 1-0 Ghana

Jordan Ayew's delivery sails to the far post which drifts past the hand of Fabrice Ondoa and the head of Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey.

The 'Partey' is over and Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu of Udinese comes on.

Cameroon 1-0 Ghana

Ghana corner....

Cameroon 1-0 Ghana

It's very much, attack, attack.... attack, attack, attack from Ghana.

Andre Ayew surges down the left but his cross beats Asamoah Gyan and Jordan Ayew in the area.

Less than 10 mins left.


Cameroon 1-0 Ghana

Ghana striking hero Asamoah Gyan is on, replacing Torino's Afriyie Acquah.

GOAL - Cameroon 1-0 Ghana

Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui

They've only gone and taken the lead!

What a mess at the back though.

A Cameroon free-kick is whipped in from the right, about 25 yards from goal.

Ghana defender John Boye inadvertently flicks the ball to the back post where Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui is lurking. Ghana keeper Razak Brimah is in no-man's land, having come out a missed the cross completely, allowing Ngadeu-Ngadjui to produce a brilliant angled finish.

We have about 18 minutes remaining.

Cameroon"s Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui celebrates scoring their first goal

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Screwball scramble.

A Ghana corner lands in the six-yard area but swinging boots can't get any contact and Slavia Prague's Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui clears.

The Black Stars putting the Indomitable Lions under a bit of pressure.

Great Scott!

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

All sorts going on there.

Kaiserslautern's Jacques Zoua comes into the area like a Stephenson locomotive after it's been tinkered with by Doc Brown. 

But he is whistled to a standstill by ref Bakary Gassama. Handball methinks.


Cameroon 0-0 Ghana


Cam keeper Fabrice Ondoa pulls off a 'one for the cameras' save from Wakaso Mubarak's bending, swinging stinger of a free-kick.

Worth paying for the still - assuming a snapper got the pic.

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Newcastle's Christian Atsu has been brilliant so far. He motors down the right and is clipped just before he can deliver into the area. It's a Ghana free-kick...

Going radio gaga

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Good keeping from Fabrice Ondoa who bravely comes out of his goal and smashes into West Ham's Andre Ayew (or vice versa) to stop the Ghana man getting to brother Jordan's low cross.

The Cam keeper sportingly chucks the ball out - Andre Ayew seems fine.

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Frank Acheampong surges into the area but his cross eludes Andre Ayew arriving late.

Ghana, like they did in the opening 45, start the half on the attack.

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Not sure what Hearts player Arnaud Djoum was doing there - dallying it looked like - which allows Frank Acheampong to burst through.

Luckily for Cameroon, Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui was covering for his team-mate. 


Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

We are back under way.

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

The teams have come back out.

Ghana players once again get into a huddle.

Spidey senses?

Apparently Spiderman has made it onto the pitch this evening.

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Gambian ref Bakary Gassama has seen enough.

It was a half of great chances and lulls.


Ghana's players get into a huddle. 

I'm guessing they're saying, "must try harder, or else it's penos".

Bakary Gassama


Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

We are very much into it...

Cameroon"s Jacques Zoua

Phoenix from the Flames (almost)

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Cameroon's Adolphe Teikeu almost recreates Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark's own goal against QPR by inadvertently heading Christian Atsu's whipped effort towards goal.

The ball, however, arrives straight into the arms of Fabrice Ondoa - it was a different outcome for Magpies keeper Karl Darlow.


Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

So, so, so close.

Christian Atsu feeds a lovely weighted ball into the area for new signing Jordan Ayew to run on to - his angled shot creeps past Fabrice Ondoa's far post.

We are talking inches/centimetres.

Jordan Ayew of Ghana dejected after missing a chance


Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Ghana are finding a little bit more room in the opposition third.

Newcastle's Christian Atsu tries to dance past Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui in the box on the right, but the Slavia Prague defender manages to poke the ball away.

Great defending.

'We're not asking for the world"

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Hugo Broos
Hugo Broos: Wants more money for the brand..

While there's a lull...

Apparently, there's a pay dispute between the Cameroon team and their football association... now where have I heard that before?

Coach Hugo Broos (we've exhausted the high-end sartorial jokes haven't we?) has dismissed claims the dispute could derail their bid for African Nations Cup glory. 

"I don't think we are asking for the world, but what they give us now is not good, really," Broos said.

"We've trained every day. I read in the papers that the players didn't train, but I had given them a free day so it's not because they're not happy with the money. And even though we're not happy, we still have good performances on the field."

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

There's an important official-looking figure reading a newspaper in the stands.

It's not that dull pal.


Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

... at least he tried.

Panathinaikos midfielder Wakaso Mubarak tries his luck from about 45 yards out. The ball had time to stop, pick up some lint on its way north of the byeline, wide of Fabrice Ondoa's goal.

Robert Ndip Tambe of Cameroon challenged by Wakasu Mubarak of Ghana

'You really are spoiling us...'

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

By the way folks. I'm sure you all knew already but you can hear commentary of this game on BBC World Service in English, French or Swahili.

It's also on 5live Sports Extra right now.

It's like the ambassador's reception.


Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

The Ghana defence look at sixes and sevens. Cameroon are again posing problems with their crossing from the wings.

This time Razak Brimah makes another instinctive save to block Robert Tambe's header - the whistle had gone though for some reason or another.

The Raz wasn't to know though.

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

This time Ghana clear, but it seems an eon ago that they were attacking the Lions' goal.

Reaching a record 10th final seems a wee bit distant at the mo.

Cameroon"s Robert Ndip Tambe in action

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Another corner for Cameroon...

Ghana"s midfielder Afriyie Acquah (L) challenges Cameroon"s forward Jacques Zoua


Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

A fairly straightforward but vital save from Cordoba's Razah Brimah to block Christian Bassogog's snapshot from 12 yards.

Moments later the Aalborg forward has another pop which drifts a yard wide of Razak's right-hand upright.

Cameroon look potent up top.


Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Cleared off the line!!!

Harrison Afful crucially clears Ngadeu Ngadjui's near-post header. The Columbus Crew defender showed great agility to instinctively lift his leg up to clear.

Ghana under a little bit of pressure at the moment.

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

Corner to Cameroon...

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

There hasn't been too much action to report on so far.

Ghana have tried to release Newcastle's Christian Atsu and West Ham's Andre Ayew down the right at any given chance - Cameroon have kept them in check though.

Avram Grant is alive

Cameroon 0-0 Ghana

There were reports knocking about about the demise of the former Chelsea coach Avram Grant - communications director of the Ghana Football Association Ibrahim Sani Dara had to deny that he had kicked the bucket.

Grant is currently located on the Ghana bench and looks animated.
