#CamerúnCampeónCAN2017 ¡La imagen del día! N’Koulou y Moukandjo levantan el trofeo pic.twitter.com/9GF8Gge0il— Camino a Rusia (@caminoarusia) February 5, 2017– Super subs –The odds were now very much against Cameroon.The last Cup of Nations final to feature more than a single goal came in 2004, when Tunisia beat Morocco 2-1. The last time a side came from behind to win the trophy was in 1994, when Nigeria beat Zambia 2-1.Hugo Broos’s side also lost centre-back Adolphe Teikeu to an apparent groin injury just after the half-hour mark, with Nkoulou taking his place.The Lyon defender has been out of favour at this tournament, only starting in Cameroon’s final group game against Gabon. But thrown on here through necessity, it was he who pulled his side level in the 59th minute.Egypt failed to fully clear their lines following a corner and captain Benjamin Moukandjo crossed from the left for Nkoulou, who soared above Ahmed Hegazy to head past Essam El Hadary from six yards.Cameroon were revitalised by that goal, a partisan crowd lifted, but Jacques Zoua fired wastefully wide and Moukandjo blasted over from an excellent position as extra time began to seem inevitable.Then Aboubakar, who had been introduced at the start of the second half in place of Robert Ndip Tambe, controlled a long ball forward with his chest on the edge of the area, poked it over the head of Ali Gabr and volleyed low past El Hadary in the Egyptian goal.RELATES STORY: LIVE – How Cameroon rallied to beat EgyptList of Africa Cup of Nations champions after Cameroon won the 2017 final in Gabon Sunday:1957: Egypt1959: Egypt1962: Ethiopia1963: Ghana1965: Ghana1968: Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo)1970: Sudan Cameroon’s forward Benjamin Moukandjo (L) and Cameroon’s defender Nicolas Nkoulou hold up the trophy after beating Egypt 2-1 to win the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations final football match between Egypt and Cameroon at the Stade de l’Amitie Sino-Gabonaise in Libreville on February 5, 2017. AFP PHOTOLibreville, Gabon | AFP | FT Cameroon 2 Egypt 1: Vincent Aboubakar came off the bench to score a stunning winner with two minutes left as Cameroon fought back from behind to beat Egypt 2-1 in a thrilling Africa Cup of Nations final on Sunday.Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny had given Egypt the lead midway through the first half and Egypt looked to be on course to win an unrivalled eighth Cup of Nations crown in their first appearance at the tournament since 2010.But Nicolas Nkoulou, who had come off the bench in the first half, headed in the equaliser just before the hour mark and fellow substitute Aboubakar slammed in the winner in the 88th minute.That sparked bedlam in a near-capacity crowd of more than 38,000 in Gabon’s capital, made up in its majority by Cameroonian supporters.It is a fifth Cup of Nations crown for the Indomitable Lions, a first since 2002, and the first time they have beaten Egypt in the final in three attempts.Egypt fell just short on their return to the competition after a seven-year absence, and the defeat will be especially painful for their coach Hector Cuper.The Argentine was desperate to win a trophy after a career tainted by rotten luck in finals at club level, including back-to-back defeats in the UEFA Champions League with Valencia at the start of the last decade.Egypt have been derided at times for a defensive approach under Cuper, but they played their part in this rarest of things — a genuinely entertaining final.The Pharaohs had signalled their intent within two minutes as a delightful cushioned pass by Mohamed Salah set up Abdallah El Said, but his firm shot was well held by Fabrice Ondoa in the Cameroon goal.Egypt then opened the scoring midway through the first period with a superb team goal.Amr Warda and Salah combined on the right and the latter played the ball into Elneny in space in the area, the midfielder taking a touch to control and another to steady himself before blasting high past Ondoa at his near post.It was a brilliant finish from the midfielder who was returning to the side after missing his team’s last two games due to a calf injury. 1972: Congo Brazzaville1974: Zaire1976: Morocco1978: Ghana1980: Nigeria1982: Ghana1984: Cameroon1986: Egypt1988: Cameroon1990: Algeria1992: Ivory Coast1994: Nigeria1996: South Africa1998: Egypt2000: Cameroon2002: Cameroon2004: Tunisia2006: Egypt2008: Egypt2010: Egypt2012: Zambia2013: Nigeria2015: Ivory Coast2017: CameroonTitles7: Egypt5: Cameroon4: Ghana3: Nigeria2: Ivory Coast, Zaire1: Algeria, Congo Brazzaville, Ethiopia, Morocco, South Africa, Sudan, Tunisia, Zambia Share on: WhatsApp
Tech experts are offering some advice on how to protect one’s data and devices in airports and other locations during the holidays.They are cautioning the public against using public charging stations, due to an increase in identity theft cases.“You don’t know what’s inside of that you don’t know what cord they’re using there’s a lot of unknowns there,” says Experimac General Manager Josh Barnes.He adds that companies sometimes stock the stations with cheap cables, and, “The fake chargers could actually electrocute your phone.”Android users face an additional danger of having data stolen from their phones.The growing cyber threat, also known as Juice Jacking, poses a risk to smartphones, tablets and computers. In under a minute, a virus can be transferred to unsuspecting users’ devices. The virus then exports sensitive data and passwords directly to the scammers.Barnes recommends that people use their own portable power banks or plug their own chargers into outlets.

Ben Stokes was born in New Zealand’s Christchurch on June 4, 1991. A little over 28 years later, he played a crucial role for England as the country for his birth suffered a major heartbreak in the final of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.Ben Stokes, for starters, smashed an unbeaten 84 to steer England’s chase of 242 against the Black Caps. Moreover, Martin Guptill’s throw in the last over of the World Cup final deflected off Stokes’s bat and ran over to the boundary as 6 runs were scored at a key stage.Not surprisingly, Stokes was named man-of-the-match after England won the World Cup despite a tied final and a tied Super Over. The hosts were crowned ODI champions because they scored more boundaries.At the post-match presentation ceremony, Ben Stokes said he would apologise to New Zealand captain Kane Woilliamson for the rest of his life.”I said to Kane I’ll be apologising for that for the rest of my life. It was not the way I wanted to do it.. the ball going off my bat like that.. I apologised to Kane,” Ben Stokes said.Stokes was a vital member of England’s ODI side which underwent a major revamp after being knocked out of the 2015 World Cup group stage down under. He said the World Cup was the team had aspired for after years of hard work.”All the hard words that’s gone in over these four years, this is where we aspired to be. To do it with such a game, I don’t think there will be another like this in the history of cricket,” he said.advertisementNew Zealand captain Kane Williamson said what happened was unfortunate but accepted his fate after England lifted the World Cup for the first time.That was a bit of a shame, wasn’t it? You just hope it doesn’t happen in moments like that. You can nitpick, but perhaps it just wasn’t meant to be for us. It is perhaps tough to review the match, and such small margins,” he said.England had reached the World Cup final for the 4th time – they had lost to West Indies, Australia and Pakistan previously. New Zealand were playing their second World Cup final. The Black Caps had lost to Australia in 2015.Also Read | India lost the least matches but England won the World CupAlso Read | New Zealand players are shattered: Kane Williamson after England win World Cup 2019Also See:
