Aboubakar’s superb late winner gives Cameroon Nations Cup title

first_imgBy Mark GleesonLIBREVILLE,(Reuters)-Vincent Aboubakar scored a brilliant late goal to hand unfancied Cameroon a 2-1 victory over Egypt as they claimed their fifth African Nations Cup title in the final in Gabon yesterday.Cameroon, who had eight of their players withdraw before the tournament, came from a goal down after midfielder Mohamed Elneny had put Egypt ahead midway through the first half.Nicolas Nkoulou equalised on the hour and, as Egypt tired, Cameroon appeared to find a new gear, creating several chances before Aboubakar struck the winner in the 88th minute after chesting the ball down and flicking it over defender Ali Gabr.It was Cameroon’s first title since 2002 and denied Egypt a triumphant return to the tournament they last won in 2010, while at the same time inflicting a first loss on the North African side in 25 Nations Cup matches dating back to 2004.Egypt dominated the early possession and had the lead after 22 minutes as Cameroon’s defence stood far too static.Cameroon’s Vincent Aboubakar celebrates scoring their second goal Reuters / Mike Hutchings LivepicElneny collected the ball in space on the right-hand side of the area and, with the defence and goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa expecting him to square the ball into the six-yard box, the midfielder rifled his shot into the roof of the net.Cameroon created few chances in the first half and were reduced to shooting from distance but they upped their intensity in the second period and began to exert some control.They levelled when substitute Nkoulou towered above the defence to head home a cross from Benjamin Moukandjo, only the second goal conceded by the North Africans in the tournament.Cameroon then attacked in waves as Egypt appeared to be holding out for extra-time and penalties.It looked as though the game was headed that way with Cameroon wasting with their opportunities until a moment of excellence from Aboubakar two minutes from the end.He controlled the ball on his chest in the box and, as Ali Gabr stood off him, he skillfully knocked it over the defender’s head and fired into the far corner of the net.For Egypt coach Hector Cuper it was more disappointment. Having lost five finals in club football, including Europe’s elite Champions League competition twice, he is now an unlucky loser again at international level.But for Cameroon’s young Indomitable Lions it was a moment of unexpected triumph in a tournament the country will host in two years’ time as defending champions.last_img read more

Finch says Aussies bracing for Windies pace assault

first_imgNOTTINGHAM, England (CMC) – West Indies’ hostile fast bowling salvo against Pakistan in their successful World Cup opener last week has not gone unnoticed by Australia.“We have prepared for it. It’s something, we played them in a warm-up game down at Southampton on the Nursery Ground there, and they bowled very similarly,” captain Aaron Finch told media here yesterday ahead of today’s World Cup clash at Trent Bridge here.“Also had a lot of success with it last game and got off to a really good start, so I expect that they will come with a similar-type plan.”Rookie fast bowler Oshane Thomas stunned Pakistan with a four-wicket haul at Trent Bridge here, sending the Asian side tumbling for a paltry 105.Andre Russell also produced a lovely spell to take two for four while captain Jason Holder and fellow seamer Carlos Brathwaite provided excellent support.However, Finch warned that while attacking bowling could be effective, it could also become predictable of there was no variation.“The follow-up from bouncers in short bowling is the key, I think, at the end of the day,” he pointed out.“I think if you just stick to one plan, then teams get on top of you pretty quickly or they adjust quickly enough. So I think it’s important you follow-up deliveries, and that goes for us, as well. If you do go with a short plan, keep them on the hook, keep them guessing with good bowling.“I think if you over-attack and continue to go too short or you continue to go too full, whatever it might be it’s about your follow-ups from those balls. But we’re well and truly prepared, no doubt.”Reigning World champions Australia got the better of West Indies in an unofficial warm-up in Southampton last month and are confident they will continue their recent winning trend against the Caribbean side.They have dominated the Windies over the last seven years, winning 10 of the 14 ODI meetings and losing just three.However, with the two-time World Cup champions brandishing a powerful batting lineup and incisive attack, Finch said his side would be taking nothing for granted.“They’re a very dangerous side, and I think whichever team comes out and executes it from the start of the game, (will do well),” Finch said.“I think it’s important that you start really well. Whether you bat or bowl first the first 10-over periods are going to be really crucial, because we know how damaging West Indies can be during that period. But also, equally, I think if we get off to a good start, then we can start to try and to get into our work a bit.“I think if we are tentative and if we are a bit standoffish and wait for things to happen, that’s when they can dominate you from the start. It’s important that you turn up with the right attitude and the right intent in the first 10 overs, bat or ball.”last_img read more
