  1. Post update

    Nigeria 0-0 Cameroon

    That’s going to hurt!

    Peter Etebo goes in HARD on Georges Mandjeck and the Nigeria player gets himself a stern telling off from the referee for doing so.

    He’s lucky to escape a yellow card.

  2. ‘Intimate stadium’

    Nigeria 0-0 Cameroon

    Nick Cavell

    BBC Africa Sport in Alexandria

    This is a very nice
    stadium. The main stand looks more like a villa and at one end we have a very
    nice arch with some ancient Olympic style pictures on them.

    Then at the opposite end
    in one corner is the ancient ruin of a castle – after all this is the oldest
    stadium in Africa built in a city founded in the time of Alexander the Great.

    It is also a smaller
    stadium and even though it has an athletics track round it (covered with a blue
    carpet) it feels more intimate than the stadiums in Cairo.

    Its compactness also
    means more of an atmosphere created by the limited fans in here.

    On paper this looks a
    real clash of the African heavyweights – but neither team has impressed at this
    tournament yet!

  • Tasty tie

    Nigeria v Cameroon (17:00 BST)

    Welcome to day 16 at the Africa Cup of Nations!

    We have an absolute humdinger of a game in Alexandria between two giants of African football – reigning champions Cameroon against three-time champions Nigeria.

    For the winners, a trip to Cairo to face hosts Egypt or South Africa, who play later, in the quarter-finals.

    For the losers, it’s the end of the tournament.

  • Will Cameroon return to form?

    Their Africa Cup of Nations triumph of 2017 already seems an age ago.

    Cameroon have stuttered in Egypt, failing to win – or score – in their last two games.
