Egypt beats Cameroon in final of African Cup

BY foxsports • February 11, 2008

Egypt won its sixth African Cup of Nations title, and second in a row, by beating Cameroon 1-0 Sunday in the final.

Mohamed Aboutreika scored the only goal in the 77th minute, converting Mohamed Zidan's cross for his fourth goal of the tournament.

Cameroon coach Otto Pfister had been trying to become only the second German to win the African title. It was his second attempt after leading Ghana to the 1992 final against Ivory Coast.
