Egypt Throws Out Morocco, Set To Face Cameroon In Semi-final In The AFCON (Video)

Liverpool star, Mohamed Salah, shot an intelligent equalizer into the net and developed the winner as Egypt came from the back to win Morocco 2-1 after extra-time in their Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in host Cameroon on Sunday. The seven-time African champions is now set to face hosts, Cameroon, in the semi-final in Yaounde on Thursday.

Morocco was ahead in the seventh minute from a penalty translated by Sofiane Boufal but Egypt changed the tempo as they dominated the game with Salah shooting inside the net in the 53rd minute. The Liverpool forward then turned provider to set up Mahmoud Trezeguet for the winner 10 minutes into extra time.

Sunday’s victory keeps Egypt on course to extend their record number of titles to eight and condemned Morocco to yet another failed campaign, having last made it to the semi-finals at the Cup of Nations in 2004.

“It was a great performance against a tough team that didn’t give us much,” said Salah, adding: “But we played well and managed to win and that’s the most important thing.”
