Egypt thrashes Kenya in first international since Port Said disaster

Egyptian soccer received some much-needed good news this afternoon as manager Bob Bradley led The Pharaohs to a 5-0 victory against Kenya, Bradley's first victory in charge of Egypt.

Monday's match was the first game against a senior international side since the tragic death of 74 fans in Port Said earlier this month. A moment of silence was observed ahead of kickoff.

Both sides were missing several European and domestic players which allowed Mohamed Salah to make an impressive debut for his national side. The Arab Contractors striker scored a goal and drew a penalty. The other goals were courtesy of Ahmed Hassan, Ahmed Eid Abdel-Malek, Ahmed Khairi and Ahmed Abdel-Zaher. Kenya failed to offer much in the way of offense.

This is the first of three games Egypt will play in Doha in preparation for World Cup qualifying. They face off against Niger on Wednesday and Congo on March 2.
