Egypt finish top with perfect record
Egypt rounded off their successful World Cup qualifying Group G campaign with a 4-2 defeat of Guinea in the Red Sea resort of Gouna.
Despite conceding an early Adam El Abd own goal, Bob Bradley's side hit back to record their sixth win, maintaining their 100 per cent record in the process.
Hossam Ghaly equalised six minutes before half-time and Mohamed Aboutrika made it 2-1 with a penalty six minutes into the second half of the match, which saw Guinea's Kamal Zayatte sent off.
Although Seydouba Soumah equalised six minutes later, goals inside the last seven minutes from Mohamed Salah and Amr Zaki made sure Egypt -- who started the match already assured of pole position -- finished eight points clear of their opponents at the top of the group.
The Pharaohs now look forward to the draw for the final two-legged encounters on September 16, with the winners of the contest booking a place in next summer's finals in Brazil.
Meanwhile, Algeria rounded off the Group H campaign with a 1-0 win over Mali in Blida. El Arabi Soudani's 51st-minute goal ensured Vahid Halilhodzic's team finished seven points clear at the top of the group - and they too will be hoping to win their play-off and make sure of a presence at Rio de Janeiro.
