79, That old Vertonghen-Alderweireld axis has been reunited for Belgium here. There was a time when they were arguably the best defensive partnership in the Premier League. It'll be interesting to see how they get on here. GOAL! Belgium 1 – 2 Egypt 75, Openda gets one back for Belgium! The Lens forward was found unmarked in the six yard box by Carrasco's cross form the left. Openda made no mistake with his finish as he lifted the ball beyond the goalkeeper's reach and into he roof of the net. We should have an exciting last 15 minutes of so here! Belgium 0 – 2 Egypt 73, Rui Vitoria has also elected to make his first change as the scorer of Egypt's first goal, Mostafa Mohamed, is replaced by Hussein El Sayed.
Replays show that the Belgium substitute is right to feel aggrieved. 85, Doku's introduction has moved Carrasco into a more central attacking position. The Atletico Madrid winger has been good today and the majority of Belgium's attacks have come down his side. 82, Martinez makes another change as Jeremy Doku is introduced at the expense of Timothy Castagne. Just under 10 minutes to go here. 80, Mertens sees a shot well saved by El Shenawy but the flag would have gone up for offside had the Belgium forward found the back of the net.
Vitoria also introduces Emam Ashour at the expense of Trezeguet. 86, So close from Salah! He receives the ball in space on the edge of the penalty area but sends his shot just wide of the far post. Courtois was scrambling to get across - I'm not sure he would have reached it had Salah's shot been on target. 86, Doku thinks his team should have been awarded a corner but the referee points for a goal kick after Hamad's tackle.
71, Roberto Martinez makes two more changes as he replaces Hazard and Theate with Meunier and Vertonghen. 68, Tielemans sends a shot over the crossbar from the edge of the penalty area. Replays showed that he should have passed to Castagne who was clean through if his run had been spotted. 65, Hazard produces his best moment yet. The Real Madrid man twists and turns to gain a yard on his marker on the left wing and eventually sends a low ball across goal. The cross runs all the way across the six-yard box - it just needed someone to touch it in. 62, We have a brief stoppage in play here as Mohamed is lying on the pitch and asking for a physio.
Full-Time: Belgium 1 – 2 Egypt 90, Peep! Peep! Peeeeeep! The referee blows the final whistle and Egypt have done enough to win this game! We'll have all the post-match reaction next. Belgium 1 – 2 Egypt 90, It's not often that you see a side try and hold the ball in the corner in a friendly match. But this result would be a famous one for Egypt, especially after they failed to quality for the World Cup. 90, Egypt win a free kick on the left wing. Just what the Pharaohs needed to relieve some of the pressure that they were under. 90, There's going to be four minutes added on at the end of this game. Can Belgium find a late, confidence-boosting equaliser? 87, Two more changes for the Pharoahs That chance was Salah's last involvement in the game as he's replaced by Koka.
He still has those raking 40 yard cross-field passes in his locker but the 33-year-old is possibly beginning to show his age. Elneny Mohamed Elneny had played a combined 4 minutes of football since picking up a thigh injury while playing for Arsenal back in August. He was excellent today and showed real composure on the ball, linking Egypt's defence with their exciting attacking players. The 90 minutes he played today today will have had the Arsenal medical department sweating but he came through unscathed and should be available to Mikel Arteta when the Premier League restarts after the World Cup.
Confidence dented The Red Devils had been expected to run out as comfortable victors today against a team ranked 37 places below them in the FIFA rankings. The pressure will certainly be on Belgium and Roberto Martinez to put on a much improved display against Canada in their first group game on Wednesday. They were so sloppy in possession in this game and Egypt just picked them off on the break. Work to do for Roberto Martinez.
Roberto Martinez’ team seemed to lack a focal point up front in the absence of Romelu Lukaku who is facing his own fitness battle ahead of Belgium’s first group game on Wednesday. Egypt, meanwhile, restored some pride after a play-off defeat to Senegal in February denied them a place in Qatar. They followed their game plan to perfection as they sat back and absorbed Belgium’s pressure before launching forward on the counterattack. The Egypt players can now enjoy their 6 week break before the domestic season starts up again after the World Cup. Roberto Martinez’ team are the strong favourites to finish top of their group, ahead of the likes of Canada, Morocco and Croatia. They will certainly need to improve on their performance today if they are to achieve their aspirations in Qatar, starting with that game against Canada on Wednesday.
