The start of the game was very fast from the Egyptian team and pressed hard for an early nerve-wracking goal and the accounts of Zimbabwe.

In the third minute Mohammed Salah sent a superb cross, which was met by Marwan Mohsen with a strong header, but the Zimbabwean keeper turned around for a corner kick, before it was repeated again and the visitors' keeper tackled the Egyptian striker's head again.

Egypt continued their offensive pressure and Salah passed the ball to Abdullah Al Saeed who passed the ball to Marwan Mohsen and returned to him to pay directly, but the keeper of Zimbabwe blocked the ball.

The ball bounced back to Trezeguet, who fired straight but his shot went over the goal.

In the 12th minute, Mohamed Salah sent a cross from Zimbabwe's defense and Ahmed Al-Mohammadi received the ball with a curling cross. Abdullah Al-Saeed gave the ball the ball instead of leaving it behind Mohammed Al-Nini and his shot went off the pitch.

The visitors surprised the Egyptian team after they got a mistake and played it quickly and passed the ball to the Khamis Biliat but Mohammed Al Shennawi rushed out of his goal and responded to him to go the ball to a corner.
