Bradley's Egypt wins latest friendly

Egyptian soccer continues to be in recovery mode after the club season was cancelled in the aftermath of the fatal riots in Port Said, but the beat goes on for Bob Bradley and the Egyptian national team.

Egypt defeated Uganda 2-1 in Sudan on Thursday to remain unbeaten in the four games since the tragedy that took the lives of 74 people last month. The Pharaohs came from behind to get the victory, getting a goal from Ibrahim Salah and a late winner from Mohamed Aboutrika, a star player who came out of retirement after initially calling it quits on his career following the riots.

Egypt has now defeated a Kenyan U-23 side 5-0, Niger 1-0, played Congo to a scoreless draw and beaten Uganda in the last month, and Bradley's side faces Chad on Saturday in another friendly leading up to a series of World Cup qualifying and African Cup of Nations qualifying matches in June.
