Egypt began their World Cup campaign with a 2-0 victory over Mozambique in a virtually empty stadium in Alexandria, Friday 1 June 2012.
In the country's first game at home in eight months, Mahmoud Fathallah and Mohamed Zidan scored twice in nine minutes early in the second half.
Egypt were forced to play their Group G encounter behind closed doors because of a Fifa ban after the Port Said stadium riots in February 2012, where 74 people died.
The Pharoahs' American coach Bob Bradley, in his first competitive fixture in charge, was relieved with the result after a poor first-half performance.
-In the first half we created some chances but when they weren't successful they got nervous, he told the BBC.
-But we spoke to the players and told them to focus and calm down, and they performed better.
