Egypt's victory ensured that the Cape Verde national team and the Malawi national team had a chance to advance through the window of the best performing teams in third place.
Ivory Coast leads Group E with 4 points and is unlikely to fail to qualify for the round of 16.
The same has been seen for Mali and Gambia teams in Group F who both already have 4 points each after two games.
In a match between Nigeria and Guinea Bissau, Nigeria continued their dominance from the start of the tournament by scoring two goals in the second half through Umar Sadiq and team captain William Troost-Ekong.
The interim coach of the Nigeria national team, which has won the AFCON trophy three times in the past, made eight changes to last Wednesday's game. But it was the change that brought Kelechi Iheanacho to fruition after a clean pass completed by Sadiq in the 56th minute of the game.
