Mohamed Salah scored the only goal of the game as Egypt overtook Uganda into top spot in Group E of Africa's World Cup qualifying programme after defeating the Cranes in Alexandria on Tuesday.

The East Africans ran out surprise 1-0 winners when the two sides met in Namboole on Thursday, but the Pharaohs avenged that defeat after Salah's early strike went unanswered.

The win takes Egypt back up to top spot on nine points, two ahead of Uganda in second. Ghana - who travel to Kampala in October - are...

African World Cup Qualifiers: Midway-point review

We're at the midway point in Africa's World Cup qualifying campaign, as the race to be among the continent's five representatives in Russia hots up.

With only the winners advancing from each of the five four-team groups, the margin for error was always going to be small, and yet all but two of Africa's contenders have dropped points from their three games to date, with only Nigeria and Tunisia preserving a 100 percent record.

Of all of the 20 teams in the running for Russia - and no nation is mathematically...

Uganda prove there's life after Micho with shock Egypt victory

Milutin Sredojevic naturally received considerable praise when Uganda qualified for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, ending their near-four-decade wait for a spot at the continental high table.

They may have fallen in the first round, but their rugged physicality, defensive organisation and the frankness of both players and coach won them plaudits across the continent.

Emmanuel Okwi scored the only goal of the game as Uganda stunned Egypt 1-0 in Namboole to transform their World Cup qualifying prospects and hand the Pharaohs a significant blow on the road to Russia.

Okwi, who was a regular torment for veteran Egyptian defender Mohamed Abdel Shafy, struck the winner in the 51st minute when he was picked out by Murushid Juuko, evaded the challenges of the Pharaohs' backline and slammed home past Essam El-Hadary.

Egypt sought to battle back through Liverpool's in-form...

44-year-old Essam El-Hadary deserves respect, but I'm Africa's best keeper - Denis Onyango

Legendary Egypt goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary is one of Africa's all-time greats, but Uganda's Denis Onyango believes that no one can match his recent form.

At 44, the Pharaohs legend is still going strong, and is part of Hector Cuper's squad to face the Cranes in Thursday's World Cup qualifier.

The goalkeeper, once identified by Didier Drogba as his toughest-ever opponent, started the Africa Cup of Nations final as Egypt were defeated, and would take Faryd Mondragon's record as the oldest player to...
