Hassane Hussein opened the scoring for Egypt scoring a hat trick before Ismaeel Bahgat came through with a brace.
Moustafa Abdelmoneim and Moustafa Shaaban scored a goal apiece to further dent Uganda’s record.
Uganda’s goals were scored by Ambrose Kigozi and Brian Nkuubi. The Sand Cranes will therefore face Senegal in the semifinals on Friday.
