Pharaohs claim second win

Latest update : 2008-01-27

Egypt claimed their second win of the 2008 African Nations Cup as they defeated Sudan 3-0 on Saturday. Sitting comfortably at the top of Group C with one game to go, the Pharaohs look likely to qualify for the knockout stage.

KUMASI, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Titleholders Egypt continued
their free-scoring form at the African Nations Cup with a 3-0
win over outsiders Sudan in Group C on Saturday.


Hosni Abd Rabou broke the deadlock with a controversial,
twice-taken penalty in the 28th minute and Mohamed Aboutrika
scored twice in a five-minute spell late in the game.


Egypt, 4-2 winners over Cameroon in their first game, lead
the group with a maximum six points while Cameroon and Zambia
have three apiece.


Sudan, who fought hard and gave their more powerful
neighbours a tough time until the last 15 minutes, are bottom
with none.
