Egypt equalise late to draw against Kuwait in friendly match ahead of World Cup | Africanews

By: Africanews

Egypt’s Ayman Ashraf equalised nine minutes from fulltime as they drew 1-1 away to Kuwait on Friday in the first of three warmup matches before they head to the World Cup in Russia next month.

Fahad Al Ansari scored after six minutes for the Gulf country, but substitute Ashraf squeezed home a square pass from Mahmoud Kahraba for the 81st-minute equaliser.

Egypt were without talisman Mohamed Salah, who will play for Liverpool in Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid, and found it hard to break down their defensive-minded hosts.

Egypt play Colombia on June 1 and Belgium on June 6 in their final warmup games before they head to the World Cup, where they are in Group A with Uruguay, hosts Russia and Saudi Arabia.
