Posted on April 23, 2016


Egypt defeated Zambia 5-4 in the semi-final of the Africa Cup of Nations to book their place in the tournament final, as well as the World Cup in Colombia.

Egypt qualified for the semi-final after collecting seven points from three matches, as they finished top of their group and booked a meeting with Zambia in the semi-final.

The Pharaohs dominated the first half, and by the time the referee whistled for half-time, the score was 4-1.

Zambia team came roaring back in the second half, however, scoring three goals, but Egypt scored in the dying minutes of the match to seal the all-important win, which qualifies the Egypt national team to the tournament final as well as the Futsal World Cup, which will take place in Colombia between the 10th of September and the 1st of October.

Egypt will face Morocco in the African Cup of Nations final on Sunday for the second time in the competition, with the latter side winning the first encounter 3-2.
