Mo Salah turns hero as Egypt secure first Afcon 2021 win against Guinea-Bissau

by: Evolve


Mohamed Salah scored the game-winning goal in the Africa Cup of Nations match between Egypt and Guinea-Bissau at Roumde Adjia Stadium on Saturday, leading an unimpressive Egypt to victory.

After being thwarted by the post midway in the first half, the Liverpool striker broke the deadlock with a thunderous low shot in the second half.

In the 69th minute, the attacker slid the ball past Mendes from a tight angle, demonstrating his excellent technique.

Late in the second half, though, drama erupted when Mama Balde of Guinea-Bissau scored a magnificent goal, only for the referee to reject it after checking with VAR, deciding that a foul had been committed.

After losing the tournament opener to Nigeria on January 11, the Pharaohs earned their first three points with a 1-0 victory.
