Cameroon have booked an AFCON 2017 final place following a 2 - 0 victory over West African rivals Ghana in the competition's semi-final.

The indomitable lions opened the scoring in the 71st when Ghana's goalkeeper Razak came off his line to intercept a freekick delivered from outside the area - after a spectacular foul by Wakaso.

The black stars' goalie got nowhere near the ball and succeeded only in distracting Boye, who merely headed softly backwards. Ngadeu controlled it at the back post and maneuvered himself into shooting position before firing into the net to put his side ahead.
