Egypt enjoyed a 3-0 victory over Tanzania in Alexandria on Sunday evening, in their opener of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. Mohamed Salah got two assists and one goal to fire the seven-time African champions to top spot in Group G, ahead of Nigeria on goal difference.... The Pharaohs were back in the driving seat in terms of possession as the second half resumed, ultimately breaking the deadlock at the hour mark through Rami Rabia, who headed home a corner kick from Mohamed Salah. And 57th minute substitute Bassem Morsy doubled Egypt’s advantage five minutes later with another successful header, thanks to Salah’s second assist of the evening. The Fiorentina star got himself on the scoresheet with a perfect lob in the 70th minute, to give the locals a comfortable cushion." - MTN Football

March 26, 2015 - Basem Morsi & Mahmoud Trezeguet score in 2-0 win over
Equatorial Guinea

"The Héctor Cúper era got off to a promising start for Egypt, as goals from Basem Morsi and Mahmoud Trezeguet saw them past Equatorial Guinea at the Petro Sport Stadium in Cairo.... In the 84th minute, Equatorial Guinea came close to stealing a win on the counter-attack after Balboa’s header found the crossbar and sailed over the goal after Ekramy was beaten. One minute later, Egypt broke the deadlock with a Basem Morsi goal. Following a short corner by Egypt, Saleh Gomaa raced down the sideline before sliding in a low cross, which Morsi met to slot the ball home. In the last minute of injury time, Trezeguet magnificently extended the lead following a terrific solo run, weaving in and out of challenges, before firing home a rocket into the bottom of the goal to end the game 2-0 and sent Hector Cuper home with his first win at Egypt’s helm." - KingFut

October 30, 2014 - roster updates
"Shawky Gharib, manager of the Egyptian national team, has called up just six foreign-based players for the upcoming matches against Senegal and Tunisia. Mohamed Salah (Chelsea), Ahmed Elmohamady (Hull City), Mohamed Abdel-Shafy (Al-Ahli Jeddah), Ahmed Fathi (Umm Salal), Ahmed Hamoudi and Mohamed El-Nenny (FC Basel) have all received call-ups from Gharib. Shikabala, Aly Ghazal, Ahmed Hassan ‘Koka’, Mahmoud Abdel-Moniem ‘Kahraba’ and Ahmed Hegazy were excluded for the second time in a row, after also missing the double header against Botswana earlier this month. Saleh Gomaa made the cut the last time around, but there was no call-up for him for the final two Group G matches in AFCON 2015 qualifying." - KingFut

October 15, 2014 - Amr Gama & Mohamed Salah score in win over Botswana
"Seven time African Cup of Nations-winning Egypt secured their second win in four Afcon 2015 qualifying games when they beat Botswana 2-0 at the Cairo Stadium on Wednesday night.... Mohamed Salah had a 47th minute penalty appeal turned down before the hosts finally capitalised on their dominance with a 52nd minute goal via the boot of Amr Gamal, who got on the end of a Mohamed Elneny pass before curling the ball into the bottom corner of the net.... The second goal was however always on the cards, and it arrived in the 72nd minute when Salah sprinted onto a long pass before beating Dambe at the near post." - Super Sport

October 10, 2014 - Mohamed Elneny & Mohamed Salah score in win over Botswana
"Egypt made up for a disastrous start to their Nations Cup qualifying campaign by claiming a 2-0 victory away to Botswana on Friday which revived their hopes of reaching next year's Morocco finals as coach Shawky Gharib rang the changes. The ailing Pharaohs, who have not reached the biennial tournament since lifting the last of their record seven trophies in Angola in 2010, duly overcame a mediocre Botswana side with two second-half goals from Mohamed Elneny and Mohamed Salah for their first Group G win.... Basel midfielder Elneny opened the scoring with a superb strike on 56 minutes to end Botswana's resistance. He let fly from distance with a right-foot piledriver that left keeper Kabelo Dambe with no chance, hitting the top corner. Salah, who is struggling to play on a more regular basis with English Premier League leaders Chelsea, made the game safe six minutes later after receiving a lay-off from Gamal with a low shot that went into the bottom corner of the net from the edge of the area." - Ahram
