The lead lasted till the 12 minutes when Mohammed Mustapha equalised for the young Pharoah’s .

Ghana regain their lead in the second half  after Samuel Obeng netted just a minute into the second half.

Ramadan Sobhi had the second goal for Egypt after waves of attack detangled  the Ghanaian defense to level results with 8 minutes left after goalkeeper Kwame Baah spilled the ball.

The young Pharaohs took charge of the game from thereon and deservedly grab the winning goal courtesy Yasser Rayan six minutes later.

"We played a great game but lost in the end, this is football. I congratulate Egypt on qualifying. We will play to win against Mali and hope for a favorable result from Egypt match against Cameroon," Tanko said after the game.
