CAIRO (AP) – Ghana qualified for its third straight World Cup, defeating Egypt on 7-3 aggregate with a 2-1 loss Tuesday that knocked out the Pharaohs and American coach Bob Bradley.
Trailing 6-1 from the first leg last month, Egypt took a 2-0 lead on goals by Amr Zaki in the 25th minute and Gedo in the 84th. In the first international match in Cairo in two years, Kevin Prince-Boateng scored for Ghana on a counterattack in the 89th.
Egypt has not qualified for the World Cup since 1990. Ghana also eliminated Bradley's U.S. team in the second round of the 2010 tournament.
Ghana joined Cameroon, Ivory Coast and Nigeria as Africa's representatives at June's World Cup in Brazil. Burkina Faso had a chance to make it a sweep for west Africa when it played Algeria later Tuesday.
