Watch: Absolutely Sublime Last-Minute Winner Seals Dramatic AFCON Final
By Conall Cahill

Cameroon are the African Cup of Nations champions after a superb last-minute goal by striker Vincent Aboubakar handed the country their first title in the competition for fifteen years.

The Lions came from one behind against Egypt in the final at the Stade de l'Amitié in Gabon, Nicolas Nkoulou heading home to cancel out Egypt's first-half goal from Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny - before Aboubakar brilliantly controlled a long ball from Sebastien Siani, flicked the ball over the head of Egypt's Ali Gabr and sent a country wild.

Sublime.

Aboubakar, currently playing on loan at Besiktas after signing for Porto in 2014, was seen as the heir to Samuel Eto'o's throne when he was younger. Whatever the 25-year-old does now, he has written his name into Cameroonian - and AFCON - legend.
