Egypt secured their place in the last 16 of the CAN 2023 tournament, despite conceding a late goal to draw 2-2 with Cape Verde. Ghana, on the other hand, conceded two injury-time goals to also draw 2-2 with Mozambique, putting their chances of advancing in doubt. Jordan Ayew scored two penalties for Ghana, but it was not enough. Ghana’s coach, Chris Hughton, took responsibility for the outcome. Cape Verde finished at the top of Group B, followed by Egypt, Ghana, and Mozambique. Ghana still has a chance to progress if certain results go their way. Egypt played without Mohamed Salah, who was injured.
