Egypt responded with goals from Omar Marmoush in the 69th minute and Mostafa Mohamed in the 74th minute.
Ghana now shifts its focus to a crucial match against Mozambique, scheduled for Monday, January 22, 2024, at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium. The kick-off is set for 20:00 GMT, and the Black Stars are determined to secure a victory in this must-win encounter.
