The game was played at Stade Municipal de Kintele in Brazzaville, Congo’s capital city, with Congo starting the match on a brigh note as they forced Essam El-Hadary into several saves few minutes into the game.

The Red Devils of Congo found the back of the net six minutes before half-hour, when Ferebory Dore headed home to give Congo the lead.

The lead however lasted only for seventeen minutes before Mohamed Salah's header made it 1-1.

Egypt then took the lead through Abdallah Saied, assisted by Salah, making it 2-1 in favour of the visitors.


WRITER'S OPINION

Spirited display by the Pharaohs of Egypt. A well organised team.
