Egypt defeated Angola 25-15 to qualify for the African Cup of Nation's final and book a place in the 2017 World Cup in France.

Egypt ended the first half leading 12-8, before finishing the game with a 10-goal margin in the tournament taking place on home soil.

The Pharaohs now set up a meeting with Tunisia in the competition's final on Saturday, after the latter beat Algeria 27-18 in the other semi final earlier on the day.

Both Egypt and Tunisia have guaranteed a place in next year's World Cup, while the winner of the Nations Cup title would solely qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Algeria and Angola will now be vying for the third place to snatch the final ticket to the World Cup when both sides meet on Saturday.
