MEDELLIN (Agencies) - Brazil soared to top spot in Group E with a 3-0 win over Austria. Ney Franco's side dominated the match and effectively put the result to rest shortly after halftime. It took 37 minutes for the South Americans to get on the scoreboard, but Henrique finally opened the scoring, slotting home from close range after a lovely trio of passes. Coutinho added a second from the penalty spot in the 52nd minute, and nine minutes later Willian made it 3-0. Brazil boasted the majority of possession and had 21 attempts on goal; goalkeeper Gabriel was not once called into action to make a save. The comprehensive win means that the Samba Boys will finish in the top two, barring a collapse in their final group match against Panama. Austria is now all but eliminated, having earned just one point from its first two matches. Egypt recorded its first win in group competition following a convincing display against Panama. The Pharaohs employed their slick-passing game to pick apart the Central Americans' defense, and despite struggling in front of goal, managed to claim three points. Mohamed Salah had a cross deflected off the post after 20 minutes and later had an effort narrowly miss the crossbar, but Ahmed Hegazi finally broke the deadlock as he nodded home a free kick in the 67th minute. Panama had a chance to nick a late point and Cecilio Waterman in particular looked dangerous, but Egypt managed to hold on and claim the spoils. Following Monday's action, Egypt moves second in Group E, level on points with Brazil. Panama is equal with Austria on points, but having lost by a lesser margin, sit third. Heavyweights Argentina and England were forced to share the spoils as they played out a goalless draw. The Three Lions had appeared to take the lead on 31 minutes, but Billy Knott's goal was called back for offside. His effort followed a slew of chances from the South Americans, among whom Juan Iturbe and Erik Lamela starred. After half-time Esteban Andrada made a superb save to deny England's Saido Berahino, but opportunities proved rare for the Three Lions as Argentina dominated the possession late in the game. For all their control of the ball, the South Americans were unable to carve out many clear cut chances and the final score reflected a match in which both sides spurned their chances. The result sees Argentina take top spot in their group, while England head into its final match needing a win in order to advance. After losing to Argentina in its first group stage match, Mexico earned a comfortable victory over North Korea to claim its first three points. Juan Carlos Chavez's side applied pressure from the opening stages and its consistent threat forced an own-goal on the stroke of half-time. After Ulises Davila was dispossessed, Jong Song-Hyok cleared the ball off team-mate Ri Yong-Chol and into the net. In the second half the Mexicans continued to dominate, and earned the three points with a pair of well-taken goals. In the 54th minute, Taufic Guarch fired a long-range blast which grazed goalkeeper Om Ji-Song's fingers en route to the net and all but ensured three points. Deep into injury time, Diego de Buen rounded off the win with an excellent free kick. The result sees Mexico move second in Group F with three points. It heads into the final match one point behind Argentina and one ahead of England. North Korea, having earned just one point, faces elimination unless it can earn a massive win over Argentina in its final match.
