Egypt continued its winning run in the African Cup of Nations with a comprehensive 31-13 victory over Morocco in the final day of the group stage on Tuesday.

The Group A leader dominated from the early stages, going to the locker room with a comfortable 19-7 lead.

The team widened the gap in the second half to remain in charge of the group with maximum ten points from five matches, two ahead of Algeria and Morocco.

Egypt's win over Morocco is its biggest in the tournament so far.

Egypt will face minnows Congo, fourth of Group B, in the tournament's quarter-final on Wednesday.

Host Egypt is bidding for its sixth continental title.

The Nations Cup winner will reach the summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro while the top three will qualify for next year's World Championship in France.
