Egypt continued their modest results with a goalless draw with the hosts of the Comoros, wasting two new points today, in Moroni in Group G of the African qualifiers for the African Nations scheduled in Cameroon in 2021.
Comoros lifted their tally to the top of the group to 4 points, while Egypt increased to two points after tying at the beginning of their qualifying campaign at home with Kenya 1-1.
After the match, fans stormed the pitch to celebrate a draw with the Pharaohs.
The Egyptian team almost scored the first goal in the game early when Mahmoud Abdel Moneim «electrified» strong ball blocked by the bar (9).
Another opportunity for the Pharaohs when the referee awarded an indirect free kick inside the area after a mistake from the Comoros goalkeeper Ali Hammada touch the ball twice, but Mahmoud Hassan «Trezeguet» shot in the wall of the dam (11).
The Comoros team began to enter the atmosphere gradually and put some pressure on Egypt's declining defense, but without real danger to the goal of Mohamed El Shennawi.
In a strange irony, the participation of Egyptian substitute Hussein Al-Shahat was delayed instead of Mohamed Magdy «Qafshh» early in the second half over two minutes during which the Pharaohs played with ten players.
Trezeguet missed an opportunity for a certain goal for the Pharaohs in the 65th minute after Ali Hammada, but he shot next to the left post.
