Victory for Egypt!
The Pharaohs take an option for qualification for the World Cup after their 1-0 win over Senegal in Cairo in the first leg. Salah’s partners won lacklusterly thanks to an own goal from Ciss at the start of the match. The African national champions will have to overthrow their opponents in the return match in Senegal on Tuesday (7 p.m.).
92 ‘Trezeguet comes out
The Egyptian is replaced by Nabil Emad.
90′ there is 4 minutes extra time
Will Senegal be able to equalize?
89′ substitution for Senegal
Pape Gueye is replacing Kouyate for the home team.
87′ big chance for the pharaohs
Marmoush lands a nice shot into the side net. Egypt did not come far from a second goal.
86′ the Egyptians claim a hand from Dieng
But the referee doesn’t change his mind.
79′ big warning on the Egyptian goal
El-Shenawy fends off a Senegalese attempt and a cross from Bouna Sarr, things get exciting for the pharaohs.
78′ yellow card for Trezeguet
The Egyptian is warned about a collision with a Senegalese player.
72′ another change among the pharaohs
Mohamed goes out, Omar Marmoush comes in on the Egyptian side.
69′ returned by Mohamed
Superb return from Egyptian Mohamed but his shot is blocked!
65′ the game is in balance
After a great Senegalese period in which the changing rooms returned, the intensity of the match decreased and is now more balanced. The score is still 1-0 for Egypt.
63′ Bamba Dieng comes on
The OM striker replaces Diedhiou.
55′ The Senegalese push
Like Liverpool striker Sadio Mane who has a good run of dribbles, the African champions have stepped up a gear and are clearly dominating the start of the 2nd period.
48 ‘it’s heating up for the purposes of the pharaohs
El-Chenawy unleashes a dangerous ball on Mané’s header. The ball comes back but just misses the Egyptian goals. It’s hot for Egypt.
46′ it’s back to Cairo!
Egypt will try to defend their goal beforehand. The Senegalese will certainly want to score once.
45’+3 It’s break time!
Egypt leads 1-0 against Senegal. The Pharaohs opened the scoring in the 4th minute with an own goal from Ciss. The uninspired African champions also had to deal with Abdou Diallo’s early injury. When they dominate in possession (52%), it is the Egyptians who tried their luck the most (4 shots to 3). Abdelmonem also came out injured on the side of Egypt.
45 ‘Nampalys Mendy warned
Yellow card for the Senegalese who hooked Trezeguet.
40′ El-Wensh misses the goal
With an eccentric free kick, the Egyptian defender tries his luck with a header. Above.
38′ it’s over for Abdelmonem
Swap for the pharaohs. Abdelmonem will leave the grass field for good this time, not having recovered well from his injury. He is replaced by Yasser Ibrahim who honors his first selection.
37′ big stroke of Mané
The Liverpool star in a good position across the full axis at the entrance to the area tried his luck but his shot went over. Senegal wakes up.
35 ‘finally a highlight for Senegal
No real chance, but Senegal eventually put (a little) fire on the Egyptian defence, well aided by El Shenawy, not Imperial, on an air exit.
32′ El-Wensh warned
The Egyptian is shown a yellow card for a collision with Diedhiou on the surface. This gives a free kick that does nothing.
28 ‘Abdelmonem has yet to come out
The defender has not yet recovered from his injury and is leaving the field on a stretcher. While we waited for a change, he finally comes back on the lawn a second time.
24 ‘Egypt still threatens
Nice head of Mohamed but lacks power. Mendy is vigilant.
20 ‘Abdelmonem takes his place
Nothing serious for the Egyptian defender who takes his place. Senegal looks for the fault but does not find its attackers in a good position.
17′ Abdelmonem injured
After an air shock, the Egyptian defender injured his face. He bleeds from the nose and remains on the ground. Another game stoppage.
13 ‘Abdou Diallo is injured
Another blow to Senegal (and maybe PSG), Abdou Diallo comes out with an injury (muscular?). The central defender is replaced by Pape Abou Cissé.
9 ‘Trezeguet is not worried Mendy
The eccentric Egyptian on the left tries his luck from a distance on a free kick, but his shot is harmless to the Senegalese.
4′ Goal of the Pharaohs !!!!!!!
Buuuut from Egypt! Salah’s shot hits the crossbar and the ball comes back to Saliou Ciss who pushes the ball into the back of the net despite himself! It’s a terrible csc for the African champions. Egypt led 1-0 after 4 minutes.
1′ Let’s go!
A lot of clumsiness on both sides at the first balls.
Both teams take the field
The pharaohs who play in red will join in.
Waiting for kickoff…
… Algeria take an option on qualifying after their win over Cameroon.
