What a goal! Aboubakar produced a moment of magic.
What a goal! Aboubakar produced a moment of magic.

Vincent Aboubakar, who plies his trade with Turkish club Besiktas, sealed Cameroon’s fifth Africa Cup of Nations – and their first for 15 years – flicking the ball over Egypt’s Ali Gabr and then stroking the ball home in stunning style.

The 2-1 defeat was cruel on the Pharoahs but Aboubakar, who entered the fray at the start of the second-half, ensured Cameroon finally defeated Egypt in the final of the competition after three attempts.

They are now the second-most successful nation in the competition – behind the opponents they beat on Sunday night.
