Seven times winners Egypt reaches last eight of Gabon nations cup

Egypt reached the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals as Group D winners with a 1-0 win over already qualified Ghana, who finish as runners-up. Mohamed Salah provided the decisive moment, lashing in a free-kick through a gap in Ghana's defensive wall.

A mistake by Ghana keeper Brimah Razak presented Marwan Mohsen with a chance to double the lead but he shot over. Daniel Amartey missed Ghana's best chance, heading wide from Christian Atsu's free-kick to the back post.The result means Egypt will face Morocco and Ghana will take on DR Congo in last-eight matches on Sunday.
