Egypt Beat Guinea To Qualify For AFCON 2023

Mahmoud ‘Trezeguet’ Ahmed scored and provided an assist as Egypt qualified for the 2023 TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Guinea in Marrakesh on Wednesday.

Serhou Guirassy had given the Guineans a 26th minute lead but Trezeguet equalized for Egypt just before the break, and then set up Mostafa Mohamed for the winner 11 minutes to time.

The victory saw Egypt move to 12 points after five rounds of matches, and have an unassailable lead of nine points to the third placed team with one round of qualification matches left to play.

Guinea remain second with nine points and will only need a draw in the final qualification match in September to earn a ticket to the final tournament.
