African Cup of Nations Recap–Day 3

Ghana 2008 logo African Cup of Nations Recap  Day 3

Yesterday’s action in the African Cup of Nations involved Group C, and Egypt’s 4-2 victory over Cameroon put the defending champions in a great position while Cameroon will now have to battle out of a hole to advance to the quarterfinals, which had to have been their minimum expectation before the tournament began.

This was a very interesting game in that three players, two for Egypt and one for Cameroon, scored two goals each. A brace from Samuel Eto’o wasn’t enough for the
Indomitable Lions to overcome Egypt yesterday, who featured Middlesbrough midfielder Mohamed Shawky.

The second game of the day saw Zambia beat Sudan 3-0. That result all but eliminates Sudan but if Zambia can pull off an upset in either of their next two group matches, they’ll likely advance to the next round and that would be a major coup for the south African side. A goal in the 2nd minute by James Chamanga really ended any suspense this game could have potentially had.

Once again, there are two games on tap for today with the key match being Tunisia-Senegal.
