  • Description

    Zaire pulled back from the brink of defeat to snatch a dramatic 3-2 victory against Egypt in the African Nations Cup semi-final in Cairo on Saturday (March 9). It was a game that brought out the kind of fighting spirit Zaire will need as Africa's representatives int he World Cup this summer.

    At one point, Egypt were two goals ahead. Their first goal was a gift. During one of a series of attacks, the Zaire defence cracked under pressure and right-back Mvepu drove the ball into his own net.

    After the interval, Greisha added Egypt's second goal and the host side looked comfortable winners. But the exhilaration for Egyptian fans in the Nasser Stadium lasted only a minute. Zaire's inside-right N'daya scored to reduce the Egyptian lead to 2-1.

    Five minutes after that, Zaire captain and inside-left Kidumu scored the equaliser with a simple header. And then N'daya cropped up again to score the winning goal for Zaire, who will meet Zambia in Tuesday's Cup Final.
