Egypt takes control of Group F of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers! After a review of four points in two games that was deemed sufficiently mitigated by leaders argued for the replacement of coach Hossam El-Badry by Carlos Queiroz, the Pharaohs have won the shock of the 3 th day against Libya (1- 0) this Friday in Alexandria to take the lead in front of their neighbor.
Dominating for a long time but uninspired against very defensive Libyans, the Egyptians almost got punished before the break, but El Shenawy saved them by deflecting Zaabia’s shot on the post. And after the break, it’s Omar Marmoush that allowed the Pharaohs to take the lead on a superb strike unstoppable from outside the area (1-0, 49 th )! Very close to Salah, the 22-year-old striker from Stuttgart will have scored points for his first cape! The Queiroz era therefore begins with a success, but the return match promises to be decisive on Monday in the warm atmosphere of Benghazi.
Ranking: Egypt 7 points, Libya 6 pts, Angola 3 pts, Gabon 1 pt
