The Indomitable Lions started the campaign in disastrous fashion losing to the selfsame Egyptians 4-2 in Group C, with Samuel Eto'o netting both their goals, the second from the penalty-spot.
At that stage it looked as though Otto Pfister's side were anything but prospective champions, but they bounced back with an emphatic 5-1 victory over Zambia.
Goals from Geremi, Joseph-Desire Job (two), Achille Emana and Eto'o (another penalty), put them back in contention in the pool, and they followed it up with an equally impressive result to seal a place in the quarterfinals.
The 3-0 success over Sudan was achieved with goals from Eto'o (two, one penalty) and a Mohammed Khider own goal.
Cameroon needed extra time to see off the challenge of Tunisia in the quarterfinals, with a brace of goals from Stephane Mbia and one from Geremi, while a lone goal from Alain N'Kong saw off hosts Ghana in the semis.
A mistake from veteran Rigobert Song allowed Mohamed Aboutrika to steal in and score in the final, and the usually free-scoring Cameroon side were blunted in front of goal.
