AFCON: Egypt Wins
By chisom nwani

Egypt on Saturday put up an injury time win over Uganda to keep the hope of qualification for the knockout stage at the on-going AFCON Gabon 2017. It took a late 89th minute strike from substitute Abdalla El Said to break the deadlock from the

hard fighting Ugandan side. The victory meant that Egypt could still qualify in Group D with four points from two matches. The Pharaohs drew the first match 0-0 against Mali. Ghana is currently toping the Group D standing after defeating Mali by a

lone goal in the first match. Ghana’s Black Stars now have six points having defeated Uganda 1-0 in their first match. Egypt is currently facing goal-keeping crisis with two out of the three goalkeepers sidelined with injury. The country has to put faith

in the veteran goalkeeper Essam El Hadary to save the team from early exit. The iconic goalkeeper had put on super saves to deny the rampaging Ugandan side who are more physical in their approach to the game. To seal the second slot from

the Group D, Egypt will need a victory against the next opponent, Ghana who are yet to lose any match. (NAN)
