Egypt beats Ghana 1-0, moves to play Morocco in AFCON 2017 quarterfinals
Egypt reached the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals as Group D winners with a 1-0 win over already qualified Ghana, who finish as runners-up, BBC reported.
Mohamed Salah provided the decisive moment, lashing in a free-kick through a gap in Ghana’s defensive wall, it added.
A mistake by Ghana keeper Brimah Razak presented Marwan Mohsen with a chance to double the lead but he shot over, indicated the BBC.
Daniel Amartey missed Ghana’s best chance, heading wide from Christian Atsu’s free-kick to the back post.
The result means Egypt will face Morocco and Ghana will take on DR Congo in last-eight matches on Sunday.
