Hosny is the best player in the tournament as well.

The XI looks reasonable, Kameni deserves the spot on the bench though.

I also think so and so does Annan from Ghana.

I think Goalies get little appreciation and recognition. Essam Al-Hadari was world class in this tournament. Hosny and Zaky are the other nominations who had an excellent tournament.

Eto'o scored 5 goals, surely he should be there?

Eto'o was generally a ghost in this tournament, but not really his fault though because he was always isolated whenever he played. I still don't know how Cameroon made the final without ever looking really good.

Kameni instead of Kingson who was comical at times.
