Africa Cup of Nations match report Egypt v South Africa

Thembinkosi Lorch of South Africa celebrates a goal with teammates during their Africa Cup of Nations Finals last 16 match against Egypt at Cairo International Stadium in Cairo on Saturday.

South Africa scored with five minutes left to beat Egypt 1-0 and knock the stunned host and favorite out of the African Cup of Nations in the Round of 16 on Saturday.

Lebo Mothiba collected a pass on the right and with only central defender Ahmed Hegazi on his way, he squared the ball to Lorch who drilled a low shot past the advancing El-Shennawi and into the net to break the hearts of the home fans.

The win means South Africa will play Nigeria in the quarterfinals on July 10.

Meanwhile, the Pharaohs won all three of their group stage matches without conceding a goal - 1-0 against Zimbabwe, 2-0 against DR Congo and 2-0 against Uganda. Subscribe to our SMS sports service by texting "SPORTS" to 22840.

July 4 Earthquake Shakes LA
President Donald Trump said he had been briefed on the quake . "We felt a lil' movement here in the valley, but all good"... Northridge hit in the centre of a populated area, while this quake was located far from the metropolitan Los Angeles area.

The England-born coach hinted at a more attacking approach and was true to his word as Percy Tau and Lorch had ambitious long-range attempts at goal within three minutes of the kick-off.

Salah, who has had a cold, was told by Egypt coach Javier Aguirre not to "worsen his condition" by training. Goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shennawi had to be alert to deny him on two occasions, palming away his shot from the edge of the area before pulling off an even better save to tip his curling free-kick over the crossbar.

Salah would be a monumental absentee for the north African outfit - who scored two goals in the group stage.

Amr Warda, axed from the squad over sexual harassment allegations and swiftly recalled after player pressure, came off the bench on 64 minutes for his second tournament appearance.
