Egypt won their match against Senegal on Friday in Cairo and took the lead for qualification for the 2022 World Cup. However, this can be confirmed only after the return leg next Tuesday.
African champions Senegal lost to Egypt on Friday March 25 in their first leg for the 2022 World Cup.
In their Cairo stadium, Egypt made the perfect start to the game.
A shot from Mohamed Salah finds the crossbar, the ball bounces off Saliou Ciss and flies into the net. An own goal that puts the African champions in difficulty from the start (4th, 1-0).
Despite the Teranga Lions having gone into overdrive after the goal, they failed to equalise.
Egypt can savor this revenge even if it will not bring back the title lost in Yaoundé during the AFCON 2021. Nonetheless, qualified country can only be known after the second leg on Tuesday in the brand new stadium of Senegal.
