Egypt 3-0 Rwanda: Aboutrika at the double

Mohamed Aboutrika struck twice as

Egypt beat Rwanda 3-0 to register a first win in their African

zone final round World Cup qualifying group on Sunday.

The win takes the African champions up to second in Group C

with four points, three behind leaders Algeria after three

games. Zambia also have four points with Rwanda bottom on one.

The Pharaohs had to battle to break down the visiting

defence with Aboutrika opening the scoring only in the 65th

minute before Hosni Abd Rabou added a penalty 11 minutes later.

Aboutrika's second goal came three minutes into stoppage

time at the end of the match, which had been postponed from last

month because of the north African country's participation in

the Confederations Cup in South Africa.
