Dinamo Bucharest pivot Mamdouh Hashem, veteran player Ahmed El-Ahmar and promising youngster Ahmed Hesham stood out for Egypt.
Egyptian goalkeeper El Tayar made brilliant saves to prevent Slovenia’s players from netting against the Pharaohs.
Egypt are now on top of their main-round group with seven points, one ahead of Sweden who can reclaim top spot if they beat Russia later on tonight.
