Bata - Five facts on Africa Cup of Nations finals ahead of the 2015 decider between Ghana and Ivory Coast in Bata on Sunday.
- Sixty-one goals have been scored in 28 finals - including one replay - at an average of 2.17 per match. Twenty-five were scored in the first half, 31 in the second half and five in extra time.
- Goals have been scarce in the past seven finals, though, with just six, and three of those came in 2004 when hosts Tunisia won their sole title with a 2-1 victory over Morocco in Rades.
- Of the 10 finals that went to extra-time, seven stretched to penalty shootouts with Ivory Coast pipping Ghana 11-10 in Dakar in 1992 after the longest spot-kick climax.
- Ad Diba scored all four goals in the first final in 1957 as Egypt thumped Ethiopia 4-0 in Khartoum and no footballer has managed more than two in subsequent deciders.
- Egypt, who did not qualify for the 2015 Cup of Nations, hold the titles record with seven followed by Cameroon and Ghana (four each), Nigeria (three) and Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) (two).
