Mo Salah Sends Egypt Through To The 2021 AFCON Quarter Finals.
Egypt advanced for the African Cup of Nations quarter-finals after defeating Côte d’Ivoire on penalties (4-5).
Throughout the game, the goalkeepers were impressed. Here are the meeting’s Tops and Flops!
This Egyptian team’s captain has been aggressive on the offensive front.
He provided work for Badra Ali Sangaré, who smacked a really fine strike and a cross-shot from the Egyptian over his goal.
The Reds striker was essential in the development of his team’s game, and he was not afraid to go lower to retrieve balls.
On the pitch, he played a mix of roles. Salah converts the game-winning penalty.
The Ivorian attackers were irritated with the Egyptian goalie.
He made a reaction stop on an acrobatic return from Ibrahim Sangaré in the first half. After that, he was extremely wary of a shot and then a header from Sébastien Haller.
Just before the end of regulation time, Egypt’s last bulwark produced a vital double save against Wilfried Zaha.
Unfortunately, he leaves shortly after this action due to injury and is replaced by Mohamed Abou Gabal, who impressively stopped a goal-bound attempt.
Despite a fright when Marmoush hit the bar on a terrible rise, the Ivorian goalie eventually proved himself untouchable.
He deflected all of Mohamed Salah’s shots in particular (except the shot on goal). In extra time, he was extremely alert, fending off a long shot from Sayed Zizo with his hands.
He was, unfortunately, ineffective in the penalty shootout.
He has much too little said in his team’s game. Neither offensively nor defensively, he did not stand out.
The previous Niçois was a disappointment due to his haphazard decisions. At the 72nd minute, he was replaced.
Aside from a shot against the crossbar in the first half, the Egyptian did not make an impression.
He was not as well-known as Mohamed Salah and Mostafa Mohamed, his attacking teammates.
At the start of extra time, Mohamed Sherif came in to replace him.
