  • Salah sinks Ghana as Egypt go through

The roster of teams for the quarter finals of the 2017 African Cup of Nations is now complete as Egypt claimed the last ticket on Wednesdaynight.

Egypt, however, won 1-0, overtaking Ghana to ensure they finished first and their opponents second.

They have already lost first-choice left back Baba Rahman to a serious knee injury as the poor pitch at the newly-built stadium in Port Gentil has taken its toll.

"It's hard to come out and play for a draw".

"Our ambition is very high and we are going to fight to keep progressing and reach the final stages".

"This won't be a one-sided game, Egypt is a great team and they know how to play good football".

The Black Stars want to win their final Group D game against Egypt in Port Gentil on Wednesday.

Gyan was making his 99th global appearance and was looking to score his 50th goal for his country, but he went down with what looked like a groin injury towards the end of the first half and eventually came off.

Ghana boss Avram Grant will also have been concerned at the sight of Gyan limping off late in the first half with what appeared to be a groin injury, leaving the captain just four days to recover for the next match.

Once again the shocking surface made flowing football nearly impossible, and chances were few and far between.

Stout defending kept Ghana at bay in the second half with 44-year-old goalkeeper Essam El Hadary doing well to deny Christian Atsu's powerful strike and another from Jordan Ayew one minute from time.
