Mohamed Salah scored a fine free-kick during Egypt's 2-0 win over Uganda on Sunday night to help them secure top spot in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations group.

The Pharaohs had already qualified for the last 16, but the Liverpool forward broke the deadlock in Cairo with a perfectly-executed set-piece in the 36th minute.

It was Salah's second goal of the tournament as Ahmed Elmohamady then doubled the hosts' advantage shortly before half-time to ensure a first-place finish in Group A.

Meanwhile, Naby Keita was an unused substitute in Guinea's 2-0 victory against Burundi earlier on Sunday that keeps alive their hopes of reaching the knockout rounds as one of the best third-place teams.
