The Africa Cup Of Nations Opened In Egypt With Pomp And Colour

Zimbabwe squad threatens to boycott AFCON opener Zimbabwe deny boycott threat for Cup of Nations opener

Egypt had a scare as Zimbabwe took a quick free kick that caught the home defence napping but not goalkeeper Mohamed El Shennawi, who came out timely to smoother the opportunity from the impressive Khama Billiat.

Egypt appeared bereft of ideas and imagination in the final third, with even Mohamed Salah finding it hard to create space for himself, having been well shackled.

Where can I watch Egypt - Zimbabwe? Salah also tested Sibanda, who later went off injured, after being played through by Trezeguet. However, the record seven-time African champions will be content to bag all three points and edge close to a place in the last 16.

After the half-hour mark, the team in the dazzling yellow strip took off the stage-fright cloak, taking the game to Javier Aguirre's men, who despite nearly bowing to pressure, managed to catch the Warriors' defence off-guard, 24-year-old Mahmoud Trezeguet slaloming his to slot home the only goal of the game in the 41 minute.

The Pharaohs are next in action on Wednesday evening when they play DR Congo.

Salah was involved in a slick passing move in the ninth minute that offered Abdallah El Said a chance to score the tournament's opening goal but again Sibanda saved well. Zimbabwe then grew bolder as the match wore on, finding some gaps on the breakaways.

Two hours before the big kick-off, Egypt staged one of the most spectacular opening ceremonies in the history of the biennial tournament, which was being held in summer for the very first time.

Exchanging passes with left-back Ayman Ashraf, he cut inside his marker and planted a right-foot curler into the far corner to break the deadlock.

Mahmoud Trezeguet scored a 41 minute victor after Zimbabwe captain Knowledge Musona dwelled far too long on the ball before being dispossessed.
