Fathallah scored the first goal in 55 after being set-up by defender Ahmed Hegazy before the Pharaohs scored the second goal in 63 by Mohammed Zidan who came for Mohammed Gedo.

Mozambique put up a great rally in the dying minutes but were foiled by the impressive veteran Egyptian goal keeper, Essam Al Hadry who continues to marshall a very disciplined Egyptian defense

The former African champion picked the maximum points and a winning start for American coach, Bob Bradley in his first competitive match . Next up, they travel to Guinea on June 10 .
