The only goal of the game on Wednesday was scored by Mohamed Sallah, who converted an 11th minute free-kick to give Egypt the win.
With the win, Egypt finished top of Group D on seven points and will face fellow North Africans Morocco in the quarter-finals on Sunday.
Ghana will face Democratic Republic of Congo in the last eight also on Sunday.
In Group D’s other game on Wednesday, Mali who needed an outright win against Uganda to stand a chance of advancing into the quarterfinals could only manage a 1-1 draw hence crashing out.
