  • They have also only conceded two goals across their last 10 matches in the African Cup of Nations

  • Meanwhile, Les Lions Indomptables have scored only five times in their five games so far
  • Cameroon are set to record their seventh final in the African Cup of Nations; being awarded the trophy after four of their six previous final matches (1984, 1988, 2000 & 2002)
  • Egypt have already won this tournament on more occasions than any other side (7, including the 1959 edition as United Arab Republic), and are the only team to complete a "three-peat" (2006, 2008, 2010)
  • This will be the third time Egypt and Cameroon will face each other in an African Cup of Nations final...
  • ...and the Pharaohs went on to lift the trophy after both of the previous meetings at this stage of the tournament (1986 on penalties & a 1-0 victory in 2008)

Both teams hoping for a chance to make history

Egypt

How they got here: Back in the AFCON tournament for the first time since winning it in 2010, it has been a tough road to the final for the Pharaohs, who are making their 23rd appearance in this competition. They successfully navigated their way through a very tough quartet by drawing Mali, beating Uganda, and grinding out a gritty 1-0 win over Ghana to top Group D. Whilst they only scored two goals, they didn't concede, and overall their group was a very low scoring one (as Ghana also netted just twice whilst Uganda and Mali only found the back of the net once).

In the quarter-finals, Egypt finally overcame their long-standing hoodoo against fellow North African side Morocco. Again, it was a low-scoring affair, but it was enough to get their job done. Goalkeeper  Essam El-Hadary is proving that truly age is nothing but a number. At 44 years old, the veteran shot-stopper is the eldest ever player to play at AFCON tournament, but is not letting his advancing years slow him down one bit. In fact, he was vital in Egypt getting past Burkina Faso after a tough 120 minutes had to be decided on spot-kicks by coming up with two massive saves in the semi-final. Over the course of this competition, the veteran has kept four clean sheets and his team will be heavily relying on his steady presence to see them through to make it an eighth AFCON title.

Cameroon

How they got here: Like Egypt, Cameroon had a tough road to the final. Les Lions Indomptables drew their opener against Burkina Faso, then beat debutants Guinea-Bissau after coming from a one goal deficit to win 2-1. They then wrapped things up by recording a scoreless stalemate against hosts Gabon. Whilst it was not enough to top their group, they nonetheless finished second on goal difference behind Burkina Faso.

In the quarter-finals, they were viewed as the heavy underdogs against Senegal, but put in a solid showing to push the game to spot-kicks and held their nerve to win 5-4. Next up for them was Ghana, who were expected to pose a much sterner test than Senegal. However, Cameroon showed no signs of stage fright against the 2015 AFCON runners-up, who have not been at their best at this tournament, and by the time the final whistle blew, were celebrating a well-deserved 2-0 victory.

At the start of this tournament, Les Lions Indomptables weren't looking so strong. Hugo Broos had a mini-crisis on his hands, as Guy N'dy Assembé, André Onana, Joël Matip, Allan Nyom, Maxime Poundjé, Ibrahim Amadou and André-Frank Zambo Anguissa all opted not to featuer for Cameroon at AFCON 2017.

Well, those players will surely be regretting that choice, as Cameroon, seemingly against all odds, are perhaps 90 minutes away from cliching the 2017 AFCON title. Should they win, it will be their first since 2002 and the fifth in the nation's history.
