Goals and Highlights: Libya 0-3 Egypt | 2022 WCQ
Two goals from Ahmed Fatouh and Galatasaray striker Mostafa Mohamed late in the first half gave Egypt a comfortable advantage after a cagey opening.
Ramadan Sobhi came off the bench to put the icing on the cake with a third goal on 71 minutes as Egypt put in an even better display than the one they produced in Friday’s 1-0 home win over their North African neighbors.
Egypt top Group F with 10 points, four ahead of Libya with only two matches remaining. Gabon are third on four points, with Angola lying at the bottom on three.
The Pharaohs need just a win from their final two games against Angola and Gabon next month to ensure they would finish on top and reach the final two-legged playoff for a place in next year’s World Cup finals in Qatar.
The Portuguese coach, Carlos Queiroz, confirmed that the team’s door is open to everyone,and the path to qualifying for the World Cup is strong and difficult, but I have great confidence in the players to achieve the goal of reaching the World Cup.
Carlos Queiroz said in statements to Ontime Sports: “First, I congratulate the players for the victory, and they deserve to be in the hearts of the fans because he won and put Egypt in a very good position in the group and the technical staff.”
Queiroz added, “We are thinking of continuing this approach during the journey, and I feel that we are good, but not in the place I aspire to, and we will try to reach it, and we will play in the Arab Championship and the African Championship, and after that, we will return to the fight to qualify for the World Cup.”
