Guinea-Bissau 0-1 Egypt summary: score, goals, highlights, AFCON

Update:
Guinea-Bissau 0-1 Egypt summary: score, goals, highlights, AFCON

Here's confirmation of the group standings. Egypt will now be the favourites to join Nigeria in the last 16 but the Djurtus are still in with a shout against a Super Eagles side who are likely to make plenty of changes for what to them is a dead rubber.

90+4

And there's the whistle! Guinea-Bissau payers drop to the turf as Egypt celebrate. It was far from pretty but the Pharaohs have their first win at the Cup of Nations and are now second in the group ahead of the final round of matches.

90+3

Cassamá! He really got hold of that and El Shenawy is forced into a sharp stop!

90+2

Trézéguet tries to take it into the corner and is pulled up for a foul. The Djurtus have one final charge left to nick a deserved point.

90+1

Egypt have a  free for a tug on Salah. No hurry to take. A corner results from that, taken short. Egypt are begging the clock to speed up.

90

Four minutes added.

88

Trézéguet does well to prevent the ball going out for a Djurtus goal kick and keeps it up the other end, right where Egypt want it.

86

Guinea-Bissau's assistant coach, standing in for the covid-positive Baciro Candé, is furious.

84

Disallowed! Baldé is adjudged to have fouled Kamal to win the ball, although it looked like the Egypt defender lost his footing in a fair dinkum tussle. Guinea-Bissau are not happy and rightly so. Egypt with a huge let-off, one they scarcely deserve on the basis of performance.

82

There's a kerfuffle going on though... looks like VAR is getting involved.

The Troyes forward, who hasn't scored in eight games, wins the ball back on the far side, beats two defenders and smashes into the far corner past the despairing dive of El Shenawy! What a way to end a drought!

81

Goooooooooooooooal! Mama Baldé! The stadium goes wild!

80

Jorginho! The Djurtus sub turned on a sixpence there and unleashed a decent effort but it was straight down El Shenawy's throat, much to the relief of Egypt.

78

Al Ahly duo Mohamed Sherif and Hamdy Fathy come on for Egypt.

76

Leonel Ucha and Frédéric Mendy enter the fray for Guinea-Bissau.

73

Woodwork again! Zizo finds himself in space in the area and side-foots goalwards but the post comes to the rescue.

70

That's a slap in the face for Guinea-Bissau, who have been in the ascendancy for the past 15 minutes. Salah has scored some important goals in his time but there was no better moment for the Egypt captain to pop up for his country.

Out of nothing Egypt have the lead! Trézéguet lofts the ball to the far post and the Liverpool forward, unmarked, steals in to volley home!

69

Gooooooooooooooooooal! Salah!

68

The Djurtus break, Egypt clear. The Djurtus win the ball back. They are first to everything at the moment.

66

The Djurtus are knocking it about with zip now and Candé turns on some skill to get the crowd going. On points, they have this second half in the bag at the moment.

64

Kamal hoists a cross towards nobody in particular and it's straight out on the far side. Egypt are devoid of ideas at the moment.

61

Jorginho comes on for the Djurtus, Ambri makes way.

60

Guinea-Bissau are increasingly comfortable on the ball and have Egypt chasing shadows at the moment.

57

Said off for Egypt, Trézéguet on.

56

Candé takes again but this effort has none of the fizz and dip of his first half crack and sails over.

54

Hello, what's been give here... Moreto is clothes-lined on the edge of the area and the Djurtus think they have a penalty! But the ref says no dice and points to a spot just outside the area. Free-kick...

52

Baldé tries his luck but it's a wild effort and well over El Shenawy's bar.

50

The resulting free kick is too short to do any damage and Egypt clear. A draw suits the Djurtus much better than it does Egypt though, and Queiroz's side haven't made the breakthrough yet despite 12 attempts.

49

That's a dreadful challenge from Elneny, who scythes through Moreto Cassamá and the Reims midfielder is in agony.

46

We're back underway!

45+2

And there's the whistle in Garoua! 0-0 it remains at half time. 

45+1

Kamal whips in a glorious cross and that only needed a touch!

45

Two minutes of additional time in the first half.

44

Egypt are really piling on the pressure now and looking to break the deadlock before half time.

42

Salah! The Liverpool forward has a snap shot at the far post and Mendes again with some excellent keeping to send it around the post.

40

Mendes called into action to get a palm to a deflected shot. The Djurtus keeper has been excellent so far this evening.

38

Guinea-Bissau are going toe-to-toe with Egypt and more than holding their own. It's easy to see why they have kept so many clean sheets of late.

35

Mostafa! The Galatasaray forward meets a cross but can't keep his header down.

34

After an interminable wait, Said whacks the free kick straight into the wall.

32

There's still a lot of arguing going on and the ref could do with stamping his authoriey here.

30

Encada goes into the book for a foul on the edge of the area and there's a bit of handbags with Egypt suggesting it should have been red. Marmoush was away and Encada the last defender. Perhaps a touch fortunate for the Leixões defender.

29

The Djurtus are winning back some territory now as they push Egypt back. Marmoush hammers a shot goalwards from a long way out and Mendes can just watch that one fly over. A little frustration starting to creep into Egypt's attacking now.

26

El Shenawy gets his gloves on the ball at last as he plucks a hopeful cross from the sky.

23

An Egypt attack breaks down as the flag goes up. The Pharaohs are gradually getting a foothold in the final third but Guinea-Bissau have been very solid at the back so far.

20

The Djurtus force Egypt all the way back to El Shenawy with some excellent pressing. The Djurtus then break through Piqueti, who is halted by an excellent challenge from Ayman Ashraf.

17

Mostafa Mohamed! Post again! Great work from Marmoush to control an overcooked Salah cross and he lays off for the Galatasaray striker, whose placed effort thumps the foot of the post and goes out for a goal kick.

15

Sori Mané hooks a clearance out for a corner and Egypt will have a chance from the flag. They play it short though and the Djurtus are quick to snuff out the danger.

14

Ashraf heads a cross clear and Guinea-Bissau are swiftly onto trying to recover the ball. The Djurtus are snapping at Egypt's heels and look the hungrier of the two sides with Queiroz's team struggling to find any temp as of yet.

12

Fali Candé lashes a left foot effort over the wall and it's not far off creeping in under the bar! Decent effort from the Portimonense defender.

10

A handy looking free kick for the Djurtus now as Said clatters into the onrushing Ambri.

9

At the other end Steve Ambri tries his luck from distance but finds the stands behind El Shenawy's goal.

7

Salah skips into the area and gets past a couple of challenges before Bura makes an excellent tackle to stop the forward's run.

5

The Djurtus win a free as Mama Baldé is floored. The Troyes forward would love to get on the score sheet here - he hasn't bagged for Guinea-Bissau in eight games.

If our maths is correct, that's as many shots as Salah mustered in the entire game against Nigeria. Early marker.

2

Salah! The Liverpool striker spots an opening and unleashes from the edge of the area, clipping the outside of Jonas Mendes' upright!

1

We're off! Egypt get the ball rolling.

We're just a couple of minutes away from kick-off now in the Roumdé Adija Stadium.

Guinea-Bissau arriving in style...

Things got a little heated between Queiroz and the Egypt fans after the defeat against Nigeria...

Queiroz's job on the line?

Guinea-Bissau vs Egypt: starting XIs confirmed

 

That leaves Group D looking like this. A draw for the Djurtus today would put them in a very strong position to qualify, whereas Egypt will really be in trouble with anything less than a win.

Nigeria through to last 16

The Super Eagles have booked their place in the knock-out stages with a 3-1 victory over Sudan.

Egypt loose at the back

The Pharaohs on the other hand have failed to win any of their last three and have a worrying tendency to concede the first goal, having done so in four of their last five outings, perhaps most notably against Tunisia in the semi-finals of the Arab Cup. Egypt have also failed to find the net in their last three games.

Djurtus struggling for goals

Guinea-Bissau have kept a clean sheet in their last three games but the Djurtus tend to struggle for goals and have not found the net in any of their last five outings. A feast of goals seems unlikely today, with Baciro Candé's side expected to keep it tight at the back and try and nick one on the counter through the wiles of Monaco midfielder Pelé while hoping Mama Balde locates his scoring boots, the Troyes forward having drawn a blank in his last eight internationals.

Egypt look to Salah for salvation

The Pharaohs are led by Liverpool forward Mo Salah, a player many consider to be among the best three or four in his position in the world, but Nigeria proved that even a world-class talent can be kept quiet with the right set-up in a 1-0 win in the opening group game.

Augustine Eguavoen’s 4-2-2-2 formation reduced Egypt to four shots in the 90 minutes with five Nigeria players managing as many efforts as the Pharaohs had on target. Salah, meanwhile, only touched the ball 35 times in the entire game.

Things look a little sticky for Egypt going into this one. The Pharaohs lost their opener against Nigeria, who look to have taken control of the group by swatting Sudan aside, and if Carlos Queiroz's side don't get a positive result today, they could be in real danger of being knocked out at the first hurdle.
