The young Pharaohs also defeated Angola 1-0 at home in the first leg to advance to the Cup of Nations with a 5-0 aggregate win.
The Nations Cup will take place in Zambia next February as the top four teams will qualify for the 2017 U-20 World Cup.
Egypt, who missed the 2015 Nations Cup, won the 2013 edition and reached World Cup in the same year but were eliminated from the group stage.
