Hegazi victorious in AFCON opener

Ahmed Hegazi battled through injury to help hosts Egypt record a 1-0 win over Zimbabwe in the opening game of AFCON 2019.

The centre-half required off-field treatment to a bloody nose following an aerial clash in Cairo.

He returned to the field moments before Trézéguet fired the Pharaohs ahead with a tidy right-foot shot from just inside the area.

Hegazi, Mo Salah & co. now turn their attention to Wednesday’s Group A clash against DR Congo with a win almost certainly enough to earn them a place in the next stage of the competition.
