Host country, Egypt out of African Cup of Nations

South Africa have qualified for the quarter-finals of the ongoing African Cup of Nations tournament after beating host Egypt 1-0 on Saturday.

Thembinkosi Lorch scored the only goal of the match after receiving a killer pass, found himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper and drilled the ball into the bottom right corner.

It was a shocking result as most football pundits tip Egypt to win being the host, having depth and quality, but the South Africans who qualified as one of the best losers took the day.
