It always a battle when these two sides meet. It more or less like the clash of the titans. Ghana Loss to Egypt again. It was not an easy game. The pharaohs were able to score an early goal during the 10th minute of the first half, which they later then decided to defend their goal till the end of the game. The black stars tried their best by playing possession throughout the game and also tried to break into the defense of the pharaohs but unfortunately for them, they were not able to equalize till the game ended. All the same both Group D teams qualified to the Quarter-final.
