Gabon however failed to revive their hopes for world Cup qualification after allowing Egypt to come from behind to clinch victory thanks to Muhammad Salah's effort providing assists for the two goals. Gabon's hopes were deteriorated further after they were reduced to ten men and consequently having minimal chances to win the match.
