Top five Afcon final clashes
1986 (Egypt) - Egypt beat Cameroon 5-4 on pens
Egypt hosted the 1986 tournament and were targeting their third title since winning the first two editions in 1957 and 1959. Cameroon had also popped up as a strong football nation after beating Nigeria 3-1 to win the cup in 1984, two years earlier. Cameroon came to the tournament with the biggest weapon on the tournament then - Roger Milla - who emerged top scorer of the 1986 Afcon with four goals. The two teams played out a goalless draw game but the north Africans were up to the task when it came to the shootouts. The Pharaohs triumphed 5-4 to clinch their third Afcon title.
