Afcon 2021 qualifiers Monday wrap: Comoros pile on Egypt misery as Algeria, Ghana win

Egypt's 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifying campaign received another setback following a 0-0 Group G draw with Comoros in Moroni on Monday.

Having been held 1-1 by Kenya at home last Thursday, it was another disappointing outing for new Egypt coach Hossam El Badry.

This time around, the seven-time African champions' poor run hit a new low after being frustrated by the lowly-ranked Indian Ocean Islanders who are now two points clear at the top of Group G.
