Egypt led Cameroon with a lone goal in the first half, thanks to a tight angled shot by Mohamed Elneny but Cameroon over turned it in the second half to beat Egypt 2-1, thanks to Nicolas N'Koulou's goal in the 59th minutes and the dying minute goal by Vincent Aboubakar.

The wild celebrations for Aboubakar's winner announced Cameroon's return to the continental summit, after a wait of 15 years. It also makes them the second most successful nation in the competition's history - behind Egypt - and marks the first time they have beaten the Pharoahs in the final in three attempts.

Besiktas striker Aboubakar ran towards the triumphant Cameroon fans in the Stade de l'Amitie stands in Libreville to celebrate, pursued by delirious teammates and coaching staff. Underdogs Cameroon had already upset the odds to reach the final and stunned the much-fancied Egyptians with the late dramatic strike, after fellow substitute Nkoulou had drawn them level.
