Africa Cup of Nations: Egypt qualify for the finals

Egypt and Tunisia helped each other to qualify for next year’s expanded finals as they both won in Group J.

Egypt secured a 2-0 win over eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) thanks to a header from Ahmed Hegazi after 19 minutes and a well-worked team goal finished by Marwan Mohsen early in the second half.

The Pharaohs’ qualification was confirmed later on Tuesday as Tunisia maintained their 100% winning record with a 2-1 victory over Niger 2-1 in Niamey.

Sfaxien’s Firas Chaouat scored two goals in a four-minute period in the first half on his international debut for Tunisia.

Niger’s Youssef Oumarou grabbed what turned out to be a consolation for the hosts.

Group J after four matches:
Tunisia 12 points (Q)
Egypt 9 points (Q)
eSwatini 1 point (Out)
Niger 1 point (OUT)
