#SFGAfcon20 – Taher Abouzeid v Morocco, 1986

Another one of those goals that is great not because of its aesthetics. The beauty is in the context. This is the semi final against regional and tournament rivals. It is 79th minute in front of a sold out home crowding of circa 100,000. The relief says it all. As Egypt eventually when to lift the AFCON crown, this was to become the goal that would define Taher Abouzeid, who had an excellent tournament.
