Egypt coach Hector Cuper has asked his players to put Sunday’s win behind them and focus on Ghana next month in their Group E qualifier.
The Pharaohs have struck a huge psychological blow after coming from a goal down to beat Congo 2-1 in Brazzaville to go top of the Group.
Ghana dropped points at home after a pedestrian performance against Uganda ended in a goalless draw.
“We have to fully concentrate on Ghana’s clash. We need to keep the momentum going because there is still a long way to go,” the 60-year-old Argentine said in a post-match interview.
