Mohamed Zidan netted a pair of goals to lead defending champion Egypt to a 4-2 win against Cameroon in African Nation’s Cup action on Tuesday. Samuel Eto’o scored both goals for Cameroon but it was little consolation for the Barcelona striker.
For those of you unfamiliar with Zidan (pictured), the young striker has plied his trade in Germany in recent years and currently plays for Hamburg SV.
An interesting factoid from the match. Former Colorado Rapids Alain Nkong was on the bench for Cameroon. Currently playing in Mexico, Nkong was waived on two occasions by the Rapids, which could probably use a player like him now.
In the day’s other ANC match, Zambia downed Sudan, 3-0.
Wednesday’s African Nations Cup slate features a pair of intriguing match-ups. Tunisia faces Senegal while South Africa meets Angola.
