Egypt and DR Congo continue perfect starts to qualifying campaign

Mohamed Salah put Egypt on course for victory against Ghana.

Mohamed Salah and Abdallah El-Said struck goals in either half as Egypt took control of their World Cup qualifying group with a 2-0 win against Ghana at the Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria.

Roma forward Salah converted a 43rd-minute penalty after Harrison Afful had fouled Mahmoud Trezeguet and El-Said fired home on the turn into the bottom corner following a swift counter-attack in the 86th minute.

Victory keeps Hector Cuper's side top of Group E after they won 2-1 in Congo in their opening match, while Ghana, held 0-0 at home by minnows Uganda in their first game, now face a tough battle to qualify.

Ghana's best chance fell to Chelsea striker Christian Atsu, currently on loan at Newcastle, who went close to equalising just after the hour-mark but veteran Egypt goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary pulled off a fine save to keep out his goalbound shot.

Everton winger Yannick Bolasie fired the winner as DR Congo moved top of their World Cup qualifying group with a 2-1 win in Guinea.

Bolasie struck in the 56th minute to clinch victory at the September 28 Stadium in Conakry, two minutes after team-mate Neeskens

Kibano had cancelled out Seydouba Soumah's first-half penalty for Guinea.

DR Congo, who beat Libya 4-0 in their opening qualifying match, are level on points with Tunisia but sit top of the table on goal difference.

Guinea have now lost both group games after their opening qualifier ended in a 2-0 defeat in Tunisia.
