Egypt beat Ghana, 1-0 as Mohamed Nagy Ismail Afash aka Gedo scored the winning goal to claim their 7th CAN title.
The Pharaohs dominated the individual player category as Ahmed Hassan was selected the player of the 2010 CAN, Essam Al Ahdary was selected as top goalkeeper, and Gedo claimed the top scorer title. There were five Egyptians in the Africa XI. Congratulations Egypt! .
Egypt’s success as the most decorated African team comes amidst their generally poor World Cup track record. A bit of a head scratcher.
