Africa Cup of Nations recap – Cameroon and Egypt into semi finals

Cameroon 3-2 Tunisia Three goals for the Cameroons – is that the right word? – and no goal for Samuel Eto’o? Despite Eto’o not stretching his lead at the top of the all-time scorers’ list in the ACN, Cameroon did enough to sneak past a plucky Tunisian outfit, in what was an enthralling game.
Tunisia were certainly one of the better-organised teams in the tournament, but they couldn’t stop Cameroon going 2-0 up inside of 30 minutes. The north Africans did well to level the score in normal time, but Cameroon just about deserved the win, sealed by Stephane Mbia’s scrappy goal in extra time. They will now play hosts Ghana in the semi finals. Essien vs Eto’o – can’t wait.
Report and video highlights of Egypt’s win over Angola after the jump…

Egypt 2-1 Angola And so everyone’s favourite dark horse go out at the QF stage, but not before Man Utd-bound Manucho showed the world again why United liked the look of him. The Angolan striker’s blistering 25-yard strike (watch it above) was the highlight of a fascinating game. A penalty by Hosny Abd Rabou, his third of the competition, and an Amr Zaki goal were just enough to send the holders into the last four, but they know they were in a match. Egypt now meet favourites Ivory Coast in the other semi. That should be a cracker.
