“I thank the fans and the media for their support," Egypt head coach Ehab Galal said after their win over Guinea.
"I was confident about winning and I was surprised at half-time that we weren’t leading,  preferred not to change the way we play to maintain the adaptability. 
I thank the players for what they have done. “The team was doing well in the last period; therefore, I said I wouldn’t change the way of playing or the first-team squad."
The last meeting between Ethiopia and Egypt was on 8 August 2002. 
The Pharaohs emerged 4-1 winners over Walia Ibex in an international friendly match which was played at the Cairo International Stadium in Egypt.
