ONE MINUTE OF ADDED TIME
BIG CHANCE FOR EGYPT SQUANDERED!

SUB FOR EGYPT
Zizo comes on for Sherif who has only been on the pitch for 12 minutes! Penalties are clearly on Egypt's mind.
Fai surges down the right and appeals for a spot-kick as the ball comes off El Fotouh but it was outside the box and there was certainly no intention there.

SUB FOR CAMEROON
Jean Onana come on for Hongla.
Egypt have made a late change as we begin this second half in extra-time. Sherif comes on for Mohamed.

One minute of added time in extra-time.
CAMEROON COME FORWARD
Saliki's low cross into the box from the right fails to find anyone inside the box and it rolls out harmlessly for a goal-kick.
