Afcon 2017: Cameroon Are The New Champions Of African Football

The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon are the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations
champions, ending a 15-year wait.

Cameroon's preparation for the Africa Cup of Nations could hardly have been worse. No less than eight of its star players, plying their trade in European leagues, refused Belgian coach Huge Broos' call up to the squad. 

Now, how those stars including Liverpool's Joel Matip and Schalke's Eric Choupo-Moting must be sat at home, ruefully glaring at the TV screens as their countrymen lifted Africa's greatest prize. 

This was the team nobody gave a chance; a team lacking in quality and experience. But those who answered Broos' call and
traveled to Gabon really wanted to be there; wanted to wear the green shirt and do their county proud. And they did unbelievably!

The unfancied Cameroonian team shocked Egypt with a 2-1 defeat last night to to win their fifth title and the first in 15 years!

Congrats to the Indomitable lions.
