The Egyptians started the game very well and multiplied their attacks creating some opportunities and almost scoring on many occasions.
The Lions didn’t stay without reacting, they pulled their weapons and started firing at El Hadary’s cage from long distance, without being able to score.

The first half ended on favor of the Egyptians, but this lead didn’t take so long as N’Koulou scored the equalizer in the 59th minute.
The Egyptians were close to score in many occasions, but they lacked on the finishing.
in the 88th minute, Aboubakar made a worldclass control and shot the ball towards the goal, scoring a stunner and leaving El Hadary watching.
