Cuper looks back on good tactics

Egypt coach Hector Cuper is basking in the glow a sensational win against Ghana in World Cup qualifying.

The north Africans triumphed 2-0 over Ghana in Alexandria last Sunday, extending their lead at the top of the group over Ghana to five points despite being second best throughout large portions of the game.

Ghana controlled and dominated play but the hosts proved effective as a cautious approach yielded dividends. And the former Valencia boss is pleased with his players’ handling of the situation.

''We played a good game and I'm very happy that we were able to win," Cuper said. "We played against a strong team that includes many stars."

"Patience and balance were the key to our victory. We knew that the Ghanaian team would play an offensive game. We had to play with a balanced strategy in this crucial clash and I think we achieved our target."

Egypt will face Uganda when the qualifiers resume in August 2017.
