Cameroon stun Ghana in semis

- AFP, FRANCEVILLE

Feb 4, 2017-

Michael Ngadeu and Christian Bassogog both netted in the second half as Cameroon beat Ghana 2-0 in Franceville on Thursday to reach the Africa Cup of Nations final. A finely-poised tie remained goalless until the 72nd minute, when Ghana goalkeeper Razak Brimah failed to deal with a freekick into his area and John Boye’s weak defensive header merely served as an assist for Ngadeu to control and fire home. Bassogog then broke away to clinch the win and spark celebrations as Hugo Broos’s side progress to a final against Egypt on Sunday.
