Hosts Egypt warmed up for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with a 3-1 win over fellow qualifiers Guinea on Sunday.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah came on as a second half substitute and set-up two of the Pharaohs goals.

Marwan Mohsen had given Egypt the lead in Alexandria with Sory Kaba equalising midway through the second half.


Salah set up chances for Ahmed Ali and Omar Gaber who both scored to ensure victory for the hosts.

It was the second warm-up victory for Egypt, who also beat Tanzania 1-0 three days ago at the same stadium.

Egypt are in Group A with the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda and Zimbabwe for the tournament which runs from 21 June to 19 July.
