A brace from Abubeker Nesir in Harer City sealed the next round spot for the Coach Atenafu Alemu’s prodigies on 5-2 aggregate.
Nesir opened the scoring early in the 11th minute, a lead that lasted into the first interval.
He completed his brace in the 50th minute for a comfortable 2-0. The little Pharaohs never lost hope as they continued to press forward, and ten minutes to regulation time, Yesuf pulled the consolation to end the tie 2-1 in favor of the hosts.
Junedin Basha praised the young lads saying "we are proud of the young foxes for giving 100 percent and beating a team like Egypt home and away. It was not easy and as a federation we want to ensure they get enough exposure and preparations ahead of the next round matches."
