Egypt’s football team waste many goal-scoring chances to settle for a 1-1 draw with New Zealand in their second Olympic Games Group C match on Sunday.
Egypt’s chances of advancing to the second round at the London Olympic games were dealt a blow following a 1-1 draw with New Zealand at Manchester United’s Old Trafford Stadium on Sunday.
The young Pharaohs were guilty of spurning a host of clear-chances, including an astonishing one in stoppage time when Ahly striker Emad Meteb, who is one of the over-age players, fired over the bar with the goal gaping.
Chris Wood gave New Zealand a surprise lead after 17 minutes when he made the most of a recurring defensive lapse but lively winger Mohamed Salah brought Egypt level five minutes before the break.
Egypt pressed hard in the second half but were let down by some poor finishing, much to the relief of a New Zealand side who were content to sit back and snatch a draw.
The draw left both sides at the bottom of Group C with one point, two behind leading duo Brazil and Belarus who meet later on Sunday at Old Trafford.
Egypt must beat Belarus in their last group game on Wednesday in Glasgow to stand any chance of booking a last-eight berth.
