Botswana hold Egypt in friendly

05 Jun 2013, 06:02

Botswana forced Egypt to a 1-1 draw in an international friendly played on Tuesday June 4, 2013.

Egypt centre-backs Wael Gomaa and Ahmed Hegazy played significant roles in a 1-1 World Cup warm-up draw with Botswana on Tuesday.

Blunder

A blunder by Egypt centre-back Wael Gomaa, 37, gifted the visitors a fifth-minute lead in the international friendly held behind closed doors at the Cairo Air Defence Stadium.

Gomaa from seven-time African club champions Al-Ahly under-hit a back pass to goalkeeper Sherif Ekrami with disastrous consequences.

Democratic Republic of Congo-based striker Jerome Ramatlhakwane chased after the ball and his shot went into the net off Ekrami.

Botswana, ranked 21 places below Egypt in Africa, retained the lead until Ahmed Hegazy used his height to good advantage on 37 minutes.

Cross

Ahmed Hamoudi crossed from the right and a couple of slow-reacting defenders allowed the Egyptian to head down past Kabelo Dambe.

It was a fitting reward for the towering Fiorentina defender, who posed an aerial threat every time he came forward in perfect conditions.
