The Pharaohs were placed in Group F alongside Libya, Angola, and Gabon, and won their first game against Angola before drawing in Gabon. Egypt had only one goal in mind going into the Libya match, as only the winner of the group stage advanced to the next round of FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Many surprises were included in the starting XI, with Akram Tewfik and Ahmed Fetouh starting at fullback and Omar Marmoush making his international debut on the right-wing. Mustafa Mohamed and Mohamed Salah headed the attacking line, with Abdullah El-Said, Amr El-Sulya, and Mohamed Elneny rounding out the three-man midfield.
Finally, Mohamed El-Shennawy took the field between the sticks, with Mahmoud Hamdy El-Wensh and Ahmed Hegazi in front of him, as is customary. Mohamed Salah, as expected, struggled to find space to shine, and Mustafa Mohamed and Abdullah El-Said both came close to scoring, but goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shennawy was the hero of the first half.
Libya could have grabbed the lead through Mohamed Zubya had it not been for El-amazing Shennawy’s stop with the ball hitting the post. Mohamed Salah won a free-kick on the edge of the Libya box just minutes before halftime, and the Liverpool star stepped up to take it himself, pushing the keeper into a fantastic save.
At halftime, no substitutes were made, as Quiroz stuck with the same lineup that started the game, with Libya parking the bus and relying on counter-attacks. Egypt ultimately broke the deadlock less than five minutes after the restart, and it came through debutant Omar Marmoush. For more to know about FIFA World Cup Tickets Click here
The Stuttgart striker took a short pass from Amr El-Surya on the edge of the box, dribbled past the defenders to create space for himself, and then screamed past Libyan goalkeeper Mohamed Nashnoush. After the score, the game was rather peaceful, with Libya becoming more forward, forcing Quiroz to put on Tarik Hammed in place of Abdullah El-Said to manage the midfield.
In the 70th minute, Mustafa Mohamed had another big chance to increase Egypt’s advantage after Ahmed Fetouh’s cross found the Galatasary forward completely unmarked, but his header was weak and didn’t concern the keeper.
