Arnaud Djoum helps Cameroon to Africa Cup of Nations glory in Final against Egypt.

Arnaud Djoum’s Cameroon triumphed in last night’s Africa Cup of Nations Final.

The Indomitable Lions came from behind to defeat favourites Egypt 2-1, to lift the trophy against the odds.

Jambos midfielder Arnaud started the match, his third game in a row, and completed the full 90 minutes.

Egypt had taken a 22nd minute lead through Mohamed Elney but were pegged back Nicolas Nkoulou’s header on the hour mark.

With two minutes remaining, substitute Vincent Aboubakar knocked home the winner to give Cameroon their fifth Africa Cup of Nations title.
