Egypt Repeat

Posted: February 12, 2008 in African Cup of Nations, Soccer

The African Cup of Nations in Ghana concluded with Egypt beating Cameroon 1-0, the Pharaoh’s 2nd win against the Lions in the tournament, to win their 6th African Cup, and their 2nd title in a row.  Since I have no opinion…mainly because I can’t watch it, here are the highlights of a good match. Egypt will represent Africa in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup.

The African Cup of Nations, held in Ghana this time around, has now seen the hosts fall to Cameroon 1-0, and Ivory Coast stunned 4-1 by Egypt. This sets up a final between the Lions and Pharaohs is a rematch of their group stage fixture, in which Cameroon fell 4-2.  For Egypt, this is their chance to win their 2nd title in a row…..and guess which blogger living in the United States can’t watch?
