Africa Cup of Nations Football Results – Egypt Beat Neighbours Sudan

Among other recent Africa Cup of Nations football results, Egypt beat neighbours Sudan 1-0 in Yaounde on Wednesday.

By finishing second behind Nigeria in Group D after another laboured performance, they ensured their progress to the knockout stages.

Defender Mohamed Abdelmoneim, drafted in because of injury, headed home after 38 minutes in into the football match. He scored from a corner to make the breakthrough as Egypt dominated the derby but created few chances.

The display will not do much to temper the criticism that followed the Egyptians’ first two games at the tournament. They suffered a 1-0 loss to Nigeria (the football news), then a narrow win over tiny Guinea Bissau (football scores).

Egypt have six points, three behind Nigeria, and will meet the winners of Group E, who’ll be decided on Thursday. Meanwhile, Sudan finished bottom of the group with one point.

Egypt, who have won the African title for a record number, seven times, could’ve made better use of their chances. But, in reality, they rarely tested Sudan’s goalkeeper.

Captain Mohamed Salah played a full 90 minutes. But very few of his combinations with his team mates actually came off in what was another frustrating performance.

Striker Mostafa Mohamed’s first-half effort came to nothing and Salah’s first shot on target only arrived after the hour mark.

On the other hand, a late free kick was Sudan’s only real opportunity in this low scoring bout. Only once did they turn around the corner, through Mohamed El Shennawy in the Egypt goal.

“There aren’t any more easy matches in the competitions, so we are just please to go through and believe we can only get stronger,” Egypt defender Ahmed Hegazy said, after the match.
