The Egyptians thought scoring as of the 22nd minute thanks to Elneny was the hard part. But this did not take into consideration the determination and drive of the Untameable Lions who tied the score with a goal by the Lyonnais, Nkoulou, after an hour of play. In the last minute of play, Aboubakar gave the advantage to the Cameroonians. The five minutes of extra time did not allow for a comeback by the Pharaohs. Cameroon thus wins 2 to 1 and wins the 2017 AFCON.
Olympien Clinton Njie, a replacement from the kick-off, did not enter the game and followed the finals from the substitute's bench.
