Mohamed Homos heads Egypt's winner
Egypt upset world champions Italy 1-0 at the Confederations Cup on Thursday to ensure the outcome of Group B hangs in the balance.
All four teams can still reach the semi-finals after Mohamed Homos' goal five minutes before halftime clinched the first points of the tournament for the African champions, who had narrowly lost to Brazil in their opening game.
Key second half saves from goalkeeper Essam Al Hadari kept the Italians at bay while Vincenzo Iaquinta hit the bar with just minutes remaining as Egypt weathered a late onslaught.
Brazil, who beat the U.S. in Pretoria earlier on Thursday, lead the standings with six points while Italy and Egypt have three.
Brazil and Italy meet in Pretoria on Sunday while the Egyptians play the Americans, who have yet to pick up a point, in Rustenburg at the same time.
