Wed 19 January 2022 | 22:23

Egypt’s 1-0 victory over Sudan guides them into the next stage of the AFCON.

Egypt

found a place in the next round of the Africa Cup of Nations with the victory that was secured by

Mohamed Abdelmonem’s

goal in their clash against

Sudan

, and now they are going to the knockout round as the second team in their group, behind

Nigeria

a side that defeated them in their first game in the group.

The seven-time AFCON champions scored the only goal of the game when Sudan goalkeeper

Mohamed Mustafa

denied

Mostafa Mohamed’s

try, but he failed to do the same when

Mohamed Abdelmonem's

header reached the back of the net in the 35th minute of the game following the corner that they had.

The Egyptian’s superstar

Mohamed Salah

had the chance to double the lead for them in the 60th minute, but the Liverpool striker failed to finish the job following a mazy run, and

Amr El Soleya

also missed his chance to finish off Salah’s high-quality pass a few minutes after to keep the game 1-0.

Then Sudan had a chance to level the games, but

Mohamed El-Shenawy

saved

Mohamed Abdel Raman's

free-kick and got his head in the way of

Mustafa Karshoum's

follow-up.
