Although Burkina Faso managed to pull one back in the 56th minute through Lassina Traore’s header, the Pharaohs maintained their composure and held on to their lead.

Despite a spirited effort from the visitors in the closing stages of the match, Egypt’s defense, led by the likes of Mohamed Abdelmonem and Rami Rabia, remained resolute, ensuring the three points remained in their grasp.

The first half saw Egypt dictating play, with Trezeguet and Mohamed Salah both posing a constant threat to Burkina Faso’s defense.

Following the break, Burkina Faso displayed renewed vigor and determination, ultimately finding their breakthrough with Traore’s goal. Despite their best efforts to find an equalizer, Egypt’s defense held firm, denying Burkina Faso any further opportunities to salvage a point.

With this victory, Egypt solidifies its position at the top of Group A, amassing an impressive nine points from three matches. Meanwhile, Burkina Faso finds itself trailing behind with four points, eager to bounce back in the subsequent fixtures.

In terms of the lineup, Egypt fielded a formidable team, with key players such as Mohamed Salah and Mahmoud Hassan Trezeguet leading the charge.

Burkina Faso, led by the likes of Edmond Tapsoba and Lassina Traore, showcased glimpses of their potential but ultimately fell short against a determined Egyptian side.

As the World Cup qualifiers progress, Egypt’s resounding victory serves as a testament to their ambition and determination to secure a spot in football’s grandest stage.

With their sights set on qualification, the Pharaohs are poised to continue their quest for glory in the remaining matches of the tournament.
