Jordan took the lead thanks to Yazan Alnaimat who got on the score sheet in the 12th minute.

The Pharaohs equalized in one minute of added time in the first half through Marwan Hamdy.

The game was forced into extra-time after both teams failed to find the winner.

Then substitute Ahmed Refaat put Egypt 2-1 ahead in the 99th minute before Marwan Daoud added the third goal for the seven-time African champions in 119th minute.

Egypt will now play Tunisia in the first semi-final on Wednesday at Stadium 974.
