Egypt win AFCON group with 2-0 victory over Uganda

Already-qualified Egypt won their African Cup of Nations group with a 2-0 victory over Uganda at Cairo Stadium on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah and Ahmed Elmohamady, who also scored in the previous 2-0 win over DR Congo, were on target again in the first half as Egypt made it three wins out of three and maintained their run of clean sheets.

Egypt finished on top of Group A with nine points, five ahead of second-placed Uganda who joined them in the last 16 after DR Congo (third with three points) crushed Zimbabwe 4-0 in the other group game.

The Pharaohs will face a third placed side from Groups C, D or E on Saturday as they bid for an eighth Nations Cup crown.
