Egypt Team News:

Ruled out! Ahmed Hassan Kouka. Image @Twitter
  • Ahmed Hassan Kouka has been ruled out for Egypt after picking up an injury in the last group game against Uganda. The 21-year-old forward, who plays club football for Olympiacos, could miss the rest of the tournament.
  • In further news, superstar, Mohamed Salah missed Egypt’s last training session due to cold. The Liverpool player should be fine for the game.

Egypt  squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations:

  • Goalkeepers: Ahmed El Shenawy, Mohamed El Shenawy, Mahmoud Abdel Rehem “Genesh”
  • Defenders: Ahmed Elmohamady, Ahmed Hegazi, Omar Gaber, Ali Gazal, Ayman Ahsraf, Mahmoud Hamdy, Baher Elmohamady, Ahmed Ayman Mansour, Mahmoud Alaa
  • Midfielders: Walid Soliman, Abdallah El-Said, Mohamed Elneny, Tarek Hamed, Mahmoud ‘Trezeguet’ Hassan, Amr Warda, Nabil Emad
  • Forwards: Ahmed Ali, Mohamed Salah, Marwan Mohsen, Ahmed “Kouka” Hassan

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Kouka may be injured, but he was never the first choice centre-forward for Egypt
    , at least in this tournament. As far the playing 11 is concerned, his absence should not have any bearings over head coach Javier Aguirre‘s tactics.

  • That said, Marwan Mohsen will continue to lead the attack for the hosts, with Mohamed Salah and Trezeguet playing on either side of Abdallah Said in what should be a 4-2-3-1 formation.
  • In addition, both Tarek Ahmed and Mahmoud Alaa should come into the playing 11.

Egypt Probable Dream11 XI:

El-Shenawy (GK), Ashraf, Alaa, Hegazi, Mohamady, Elneny, Tarek Hamed, Said, Trezeguet, Salah, Mohsen

  • Head coach Stuart Baxter never settled on a playing 11 in this tournament, shuffling his squad in every game at the group stage.
  • However, the left side of attack and defence looks settled with Sfiso Hlanti and Bongani Zungu and Percy Tau performing far better than their teammates. These three players should start the game.
