The tournament hosts would have been looking to Champions League winner Mohamed Salah for inspiration but in fact it came through a different source in the 41st minute.
24-year-old midfielder Hassan fired home the only goal of the game by cutting in from the left before curling a fine effort into the bottom corner of the Zimbabwe net.
His 41st-minute strike proved decisive as Egypt spurned a number of chances to make a bigger impact but they will be satisfied with picking up maximum points from their opening game.
