Egypt See Off Zim

Egypt proved to be too much for Zimbabwe as they grabbed a 4-2 win at the National Stadium in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

The Group G game was not short of action in Harare as Mohamed Salah bagged a hat-trick after Mohamed Aboutrika had opened the scoring.

German-based striker Knowledge Musona and Ajax Cape Town midfielder Khama Billiat were both on target to bring the Warriors back into the game but it was not enough.

The Pharaohs got things underway with the opener coming just five minutes in when Washington Arubi failed to prevent Aboutrika from finding the back of the net.

Zimbabwe were determined to get back into the game and Musona brought their hopes alive in the 21st minute when he beat the goalkeeper.

Egypt continued to press though and would hit the front for a second time in the match when Salah tucked away a chance in the 41st minute.

The goals continued to fly in after the interval as Salah made it 3-1 in the 76th minute before Billiat brought Zimbabwe back within striking distance with nine minutes to go.

The hosts were pouring forward in search of an equaliser but their eagerness in attack was exposed when Salah completed his hat-trick to wrap up all three points.

The Warriors are stuck at the bottom of the Group with just a single point while Egypt are top with 12 points.
