Egypt draws 0-0 with Mali in AFCON 2017
BBC – Egypt goalkeeper Essam El Hadary became the oldest player at an Africa Cup of Nations tournament as he kept a clean sheet in their draw against Mali.
El-Hadary turned 44 on Sunday and came on in the first half after an injury to Ahmed El-Shenawy, who collided with the post following Moussa Marega’s cross.
Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny wasted two first-half chances for Egypt, striking over and hitting an effort wide.
Osmane Coulibaly headed over from close range for Mali late on.
The results leaves Egypt second in Group D behind Ghana, who beat Uganda 1-0.
