AFCON 2023: Mo Salah rescues Egypt from first match defeat in Mozambique test

Mohamed Salah was Egypt’s saviour of the day after a 90+7 goal against a formidable Mozambique side in the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Liverpool ace ensured his side picked a point in their first Group B match, despite quick fire goals from Mozambique.

It was Egypt who opened scoring in the match, with Mostafa Mohamed’s goal, assisted by Salah, just two minutes into the encounter.

However, in the second half, Witiness Quembo leveled the score just before the hour mark.

While the match seemed all settled for Mozambicans, Salah staged a remarkable comeback, seconds before the end of the match, bringing the match to a 2-2 draw.

Egypt now top Group B, while sharing points with their opponents Mozambique.

The second Group B encounter will be between Ghana and Cape Verde by 9:00 pm today.
