Trezeguet netted two goals, propelling Egypt to an unblemished record in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers. The team secured a decisive 2-0 victory over Sierra Leone on Sunday, playing away in Liberia.
Given a chance in the starting lineup, the Trabzonspor winger justified coach Rui Vitoria’s faith by scoring in the 18th minute and securing the victory in the 62nd minute.
Sierra Leone concluded the match with a mere nine players on the field, as Tyrese Fornah and Abdul Kabia both received red cards.
Egypt currently dominates Group A with a flawless six points from two games, establishing a lead over Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, and Ethiopia, each having accumulated only one point after one game.
Vitoria made five alterations to his lineup compared to the squad that dominated Djibouti with a 6-0 victory just three days prior.
Egypt is scheduled to recommence its qualifiers campaign on June 3, 2024, facing Burkina Faso.
