Cape Verde had already been confirmed as group winners before a ball was kicked and took the lead against the run of play through striker Benchimol at the end of the first half.
Egypt hit back five minutes into the second period when Trezeguet produced a neat finish from a tight angle, before Mostafa Mohamed thought he had won the game in added-time after racing onto a long pass to score but Teixeira had the final say.
Cape Verde claimed Group B top spot with seven points from their three games followed by Egypt on three points in second place and Ghana third with two points.
