Egypt won their first match at the FIFA Futsal World Cup Brazil 2008 following a 6-2 victory over China PR at the Gimnasio Nilson Nelson in Brasilia.

The Africans enjoyed the better start to the game and were unlucky not to take the lead as early as the fifth minute when Ahmed El Agouz hit the inside of the post. Five minutes later they did take the lead, through Ahmed Abou Serie Sameh Saleh.

Mizo doubled Egypt's advantage eight minutes later after being well set up by Abou El Komsan. A minute later, the provider turned goalscorer when his powerful shot left Tao Zheng with no chance.

Any chance of China making a comeback was swiftly snuffed out in the second half, when El Agouz bagged a brace in two minutes to take the score to 5-0. However, the Asians did pull one back in the 25th minute through Xi Zhang.

The five goal cushioned was restored just two minutes later through Saleh. With the score at 6-1, Egypt were content to play keep-ball and Jie Hu's last minute goal was little more than a consolation for China, who are without a point after two games.
