The Pharaohs also will play the game and hope not to see any yellow or red cards. Three players have to avoid suspension as if they take yellow card; they will miss the next round. They are Mahmoud Alaa, Mohamed Elneny and Aly Ghazal.

Winning earns the team confidence to present the best in the following matches. The win against Zimbabwe in the first game make Egypt present a better performance in the second encounter against the DRC, and now the search for a third victory will give the fans confidence in the players before the real start of the championship in the playoffs.
