Egypt bounced back from defeat in their first match at the 2016 Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations to keep their semifinal hopes alive.

Egypt lost 3-2 to host Nigeria on matchday one. Their group A opponents of the day, Ghana were hammered 5-0 by Ivory Coast.

Only the top two in each group qualifying for the next round. It was therefore important for both sides to record a win in the second match.

Ghana led the game 2-1 at the end of the first period. Egypt, considered the best team in Africa, fought back to lead 4-3. They went on to record a 5-4 win over their opponents.

The finalists of the 2016 Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations will qualify for the Beach Soccer World Cup, to be held in Bahamas in 2017.

 

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
