Mohamed Salah scored for Egypt in their 2-0 victory over DR Congo on Wednesday night to secure a place in the last 16 of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Liverpool forward netted the second goal for the Pharaohs with a powerful finish in the 43rd minute.

Ahmed Elmohamady opened the scoring in Cairo as Javier Aguirre's side now sit top of Group A after two rounds of matches.

Meanwhile, Naby Keita started for Guinea in their meeting with Nigeria earlier on Wednesday, but was unable to prevent a 1-0 defeat.

The midfielder was withdrawn from the affair in Alexandria shortly before Kenneth Omeruo's decisive goal with 73 minutes on the clock.
