Egypt and Ghana
In a highly anticipated match between two African football giants, Egypt and Ghana, the two teams drew 2-2 in the Africa Cup of Nations on January 18, 2024. The match was held in Ivory Coast, and both teams were looking to secure a win to advance to the knockout stage of the tournament.
The first half of the match was evenly contested, with both teams creating chances but failing to convert them into goals. However, Ghana broke the deadlock in the 49th minute when Mohammed Kudus scored from a corner kick. Egypt tried to respond quickly, but their star player, Mohamed Salah, was forced off the pitch due to injury in the 57th minute.
Despite losing Salah, Egypt fought back and equalized in the 66th minute through Mostafa Mohamed. However, Ghana regained the lead just five minutes later when Kudus scored his second goal of the match. Egypt refused to give up and managed to equalize again in the 74th minute, with Mohamed scoring his second goal of the tournament.
Salah’s injury was a major concern for Egypt, as he is one of their key players. The extent of his injury is not yet known, and Egypt will be hoping that he can recover in time for their next match.
The draw means that both Egypt and Ghana have four points each in Group B, with one match remaining for each team. Ghana will face Mozambique in their final match, while Egypt will take on Ivory Coast. The result of these matches will determine which teams advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. Despite the draw, both teams showed their quality and will be looking to build on this performance in their next matches.
