Egypt, Malawi draw 1-1 in tune-up
A goal three minutes from time by Maupo Msowoya gave Malawi a 1-1 draw with Egypt in Cairo as both sides prepare for next month's African Cup of Nations in Angola.

Egypt took the lead late in the first half when Hosni Abd-Rabou converted from the penalty spot, but the southeast African side pulled level in the 87th minute when Msowoya curled in a free kick.

The Pharaohs controlled the possession from the opening whistle, coming close inside 15 minutes through Hazem Emam, and Abd-Rabou struck the post a few minutes later.

Egypt finally took a deserved lead when Abd-Rabou beat Swadick Sanudi on a penalty after the Malawi goalkeeper hauled down Ahmed Hassan inside the area.

Both sides tried out numerous players as they prepare for the African championship, but it was Msowoya that pulled back the equalizer three minutes from the end when his set piece curled out of the reach of substitute goalkeeper Abdel Wahed al-Sayed.

Egypt open Cup of Nations Group C play on 12 January against Nigeria in Benguela while Malawi open their Group A campaign against Algeria in Luanda one day earlier.
