90' Game over. Egypt pip Ghana to Group D
83' Jordan with a brilliant strike but El Hadary saves
76' Tekpetey booked for making no effort whatsoever to stop running towards Elneny after the midfielder passed the ball. He careered lazily into the Arsenal man and then put on an innocent expression that fooled no one.
68' Attempt saved. Emmanuel Badu (Ghana) right footed shot from outside the box is saved in the bottom left corner. Assisted by Daniel Amartey.
Watch Egypt's goal scored in the first half below;
67' Offside, Ghana. Harrison Afful tries a through ball, but Christian Atsu is caught offside.
60' A Ghana corner is headed clear at the near post. Of course.
56' A beautiful run by Atsu is sullied by a ridiculous bobble that robs him of the ball just as he prepared to shoot after dribbling between two opponents. This pitch is almost booby-trapped.
48' Freekick to Ghana midway inside the Egyptian half. Setpieces might be their best hope of breaking through this Egyptian defence. They’ve pretty much been running into a brick wall otherwise. The feekick is floated into the area and Boye wins it but he was under too much pressure to be able to guide his header on target.
46' The second half has begun. The onus is on Ghana to find a way through this sturdy and determined Egyptian defence, albeit without captain Gyan.
45' Half Time | Egypt 1-0 Ghana
38' What a blunder by Razak! The goalkeeper tried to punt the bal clear but instead passed it low to Mohsen. Luckily for the goalkeeper, Mohsen’s ensuing lob drifts over the bar.
28' Gyan pesters Hagazi into conceding a corner. But Atsu’s delivery is rubbish again.
14' Egypt have got their danders up now. There’s extra pizzazz to their passing, and, despite the treacherous pitch, Saied is starting to conduct matters from in the hole behind the striker.
11' GOAL!!! Mohammed Salah with a beauty! Egypt 1-0 Ghana
7' Egypt with the first corner. Taken short by Salah, return ball goes over the line. Goalkick
3' Mohamed Elneny tries his luck from afar.
