In a hard-fought FIFA World Cup qualifier match on Sunday, Egypt emerged victorious over Sierra Leone with a score of 2-0.

The first half saw Egypt take the lead in the 18th minute when Trezeguet scored after a clever backheel assist from Mostafa Mohamed. The goal came against the run of play, as Sierra Leone had been looking the more dangerous team up to that point.

Sierra Leone’s hopes of getting back into the game were dealt a major blow in the 39th minute when Tyrese Fornah was sent off for a reckless challenge on Hamdy Fathy.

Egypt took full advantage of their numerical advantage in the second half, and Salah doubled their lead in the 67th minute. The goal came after Salah put Trezeguet one on one with the goalkeeper, and Trezeguet’s shot got deflected into the back of the net.

Despite being down to ten men, Sierra Leone never gave up and continued to push forward in search of a goal. However, Egypt’s defense held firm, and the game ended with Egypt securing a comfortable 2-0 victory.
