|Egypt - Senegal

Faso match, a winner here could already be qualified for the quarterfinals.
Egypt looked like a tough nut to crack in their defence with some weapons
to score, but not yet brilliant.
won their first match by a well-balanced performance but this match could
be different: Against Burkina Faso, Senegal were able to rely on counter
attacks, because of the early lead. Egypt themselves play out of a strong
defence and will be a completely different character of opponent.

Egypt: Good opportunity for Egypt outnumbering the defence, but Omara does
not deliver the lethal pass
has more pall posession, spreads the field, Senegal with some individual
dynamic runs through midlifield (f.e. Fadiga) which get easily stopped
by the organised Egyptian defence.
Egypt: Yasser Radwan with one of his rockets tests the Senegalese keeper
Egypt: #19 Hosni is substituted early (prbably injury)
Senegal: has become a littlle dangerous now
is now dominating the match a little, the crowd enjoys when they display
their ball techniiques
Egypt: offside trap fails, Hossam Hassan alone from a bit difficult angle
just tries to shoot hard and targets exactly the keeper

chance. Egypt with the conspicious Omara and Radwan then went ahead by
Hossam Hassa who rebounded from a wasted opportunity a minute before. It
will be tough to score for Senegal, but not impossible.
It will be a long nicht,

with long balls but is not dangerous either. A match without clear chances
Senegal: Henri Camara brilliantly sets up substitute #3 but the Egyptian
keeper is able to make his first real save
Senegal: Two huge opportunities but again the keeper saves
Senegal: again dangerous, Camera hits the outside of the net - suddenly
the match is exciting
substitute #3 Traoré has brought some fire into the match
Result - 1:0
dominated the match with their defence, but suddenly in the final 5 minutes
came into heavy difficulties. They did not have a single opportunity during
the second half, Senegal had only few more.
Burkina Faso does not beat Zambia, Egypt will be formally qualified for
the quarterfinals already before their third group match.
