In a dramatic showdown, Mohammad Sallah’s goal for Egypt against Ghana sends them through to the quarterfinals as group leader. Before yester night’s game, Egypt was second on the log with 4points while Ghana placed first with 6points. Already, Ghana have already qualified for the next round having garnered 6points but was seeking to get at least a point to remain aloof. With Mali’s failure to win Uganda, it further paved way for Egypt to follow suit. Just like Gabon, Ivory Coast, and Algeria, Mali also had a below par outing with only 2points to show in 3games.

Egypt 1-0       Ghana

Mali    1-1       Uganda


Egypt              7points

Ghana            6points

Mali                2points

Uganda           1point
