The defeat means Uganda have crashed out of the tournament after suffering two straight defeats.

El Said who replaced Tarek Hamed on 59 minutes, smashed the ball in between Denis Onyango's legs off a pass from Mohamed Salah.

Egypt who will take on Ghana on Wednesday in their last group game must avoid defeat against the Black Stars to guarantee passage into the last eight.

Also on Wednesday, Mali will square off against Uganda in a must win game.
