Saturday، 26 March 2022 - 10:21 AM

Egypt defeated Senegal 1-0 in the first leg of their World Cup play-off on Friday 25/03/2022 to take a slender lead to Dakar for Tuesday's return.

Mohamed Salah helped force the only goal of the Cairo International Stadium clash four minutes after the kick-off, with his shot rebounding off of Saliou Ciss and past Edouard Mendy in the Senegalese goal.

Senegal kept pressing until the final whistle in search of an equaliser but were kept at bay by the Egyptian defenders.

The away goals rule is still in use in the African qualifiers.
