African Football By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 26/06/2019

Egypt beat Congo DR 2-0 to reach the last 16 of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday night at Cairo Internationa Stadium.

The Pharaohs qualify reaches the knockout stage after beating unlucky Leopards and sits on top Group A after two matches.

Egypt went ahead when Mohamed Salah's cross was met by Aston Villa's Ahmed Elmohamady, who finished at the second attempt.

Liverpool forward Salah then added a second with a powerful strike when surrounded by two DR Congo players after a fine run from Trezeguet.

Seven-time winners Egypt join Nigeria in the last 16 of the competition.
