Egypt defeat Cameroon in the second semi-final to stage a final match against Senegal on Sunday.
Senegal qualified for their second AFCON final in a row after defeating Burkina Faso on Wednesday.
Hosts Cameroon were looking to get into the final after an impressive run so far.

The centre referee sent off three coaching staff of the Egyptian team and that means they would not be in the finals.
