The Egyptian Olympic national team have qualified to the 2015  after defeating Burundi 4-0 on aggregate in the second round of qualifiers.

The Egypt U-23s defeated Burundi 2-0 at home on Sunday to confirm their qualification to the 2015 in Congo, advancing 4-0 on aggregate.

The Young Pharaohs had progressed to the second round of qualifying by defeating Kenya 4-1 on aggregate, and have now downed Burundi 2-0 both home and away.

Hossam El-Badry’s men opened the scoring in the 21st minute through – his 4th goal in qualifying – before the ENPPI midfielder set up for the second after 62 minutes.
