Ghana rallies to hold Egypt in World Cup Qualifier dead rubber

Egypt begun the second half stronger and went close straight after the restart through Shikabala whose shot was brilliantly saved by Richard Ofori. "The fans were a source of some stress but we finally managed to score".

Ghana's Edwin Gyasi scored his first worldwide goal as they came from behind to hold Egypt, who had already qualified for the World Cup, to a 1-1 draw in the last game in Africa's Group E on Sunday.

Shikabala benefited from a squared ball by Trezeguet from the right before unleashing a stunning strike past the Ghana keeper Ofori.


Gyasi scored from outside the box with a heavy deflection that wrong-footed goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy.

The goal seemed to wake the sleeping Black Stars who responded nearly immediately through Edwin Gyasi after his shot from outside the box was deflected in off Egypt's Ali Gabr.

Egypt's game with Ghana does not account for much as they have already qualified to the World Cup since the fifth round, after beating Congo 2-1 at Borg El-Arab Stadium.
