Egypt's U-23 side claimed another 2-0 victory over Burundi on Sunday in Cairo to qualify for the the All-Africa Games.

ENPPI forward Mahmoud 'Kahraba' Abdel-Moneam opened the scoring in the 21st minute before creating another goal for Arab Contractors striker Mohamed Salah two minutes past the hour mark.

The young Pharaohs completed a 4-0 aggregate victory after winning the first-leg with the same score two weeks ago in Burundi.

The All-Africa Games will take place in Brazzaville, Congo from 3-18 September.

Egypt won the gold medal at the Games twice. They defeated Kenya in Nairobi in the 1987 final and beat Zimbabwe in Harare in 1995.
