THE GAME KICKS OFF

Africa Cup of Nations match kicks off, Ivory Coast vs Egypt 
1:08 PM4 months ago

EGYPT TEAM SUMMARY

After the defeat in the first round of the group stage by Nigeria (0:1), Egypt rallied with thoughts managed to win Guinea-Bissau Sudan and with the same score of 1:0. No sparks in the game nominal guests. No desire to win. It seems that the team in every game plays because it is necessary, and not to go as far as possible and compete for victory in the Cup.
1:03 PM4 months ago

IVORY COAST TEAM SUMMARY

Ivory Coast did not lose again on this Caen. In this confrontation, the nominal hosts are the minimal favorites. But it is not so simple, because the next opponent is not a guy to beat and will certainly try to leave the Ivorians. It all depends on what state of mind the national team will come out in this match.

Watch out for this Egypt player:

Since his arrival in 2017 to the Red's squad, the Pharaoh Mohamed Salah has become an idol of all and sundry for his great determination he has inside the box, technique when touching the ball and being a true leader inside the field. With Liverpool he has played 12,511 minutes in which he has started 149 times, scored 98 times and assisted 38 times, he has also only received three yellow cards in his entire stay in the team that never walks alone. Likewise, despite being a right winger, he has also played as a striker when required, so Salah could be the unbalancing factor that puts the balance in favor of the Egyptian team.

12:08 PM4 months ago

Watch out for this Ivory Coast player:

A star of Italian soccer and a mainstay at Milan, Frack Kessie will be the player to watch for the Ivory Coast squad, this season, the defensive midfielder or holding midfielder has played 1,193 minutes of which are divided into 16 matches, 5 goals and 1 yellow card. However, before the start of the African Cup he suffered a muscle injury and although he has not performed at 100% capacity, he has shown that by being available to play he can make a difference on the field.

Background:

Their last meeting dates back to an international friendly in 2013, when Côte d'Ivoire defeated Egypt 4-2.

They want to win if they have to

The Egyptian team finished the group phase in second place overall, after losing in their debut against Nigeria by the minimum difference, beating Guinea in the second match by the minimum difference and finally qualifying for the round of 16 by beating Sudan by the same score of the previous two matches, a situation that placed them with 6 out of 9 points and assured them a place in the knockout rounds. The worrying thing, is that Egypt has struggled quite a bit to do damage as their duels have been very close and despite having a good defensive level, the attack has failed to perform as well as their opponents have, so the key for them will be to have the best defense and thus counterattack.
11:38 AM4 months ago

In search of victory

The Ivory Coast national team qualified for the round of 16 as first place in group D, after obtaining 7 points out of a possible 9. In their debut they defeated Equatorial Guinea by the minimum difference, then in round 2 they tied in a vibrant 2-2 draw with Sierra Leone and in the last match of the group stage, they defeated Algeria with a resounding 3-1 win. Now, they will face Egypt, a team that finished second in their group and will be looking to cause them problems in this qualifying round.

To engrave their name in the glory

The real excitement begins in the Africa Cup of Nations, the group stage is over and this time the knockout rounds of the tournament begin, where a single 90-minute match will decide the winner who will have a direct ticket to the quarterfinals of the tournament and also continue with the dream of winning the Cup. While the losers will see their hopes come to an end and will return home empty-handed. This time, it is the turn of Ivory Coast and Egypt to face each other, two teams that have always been candidates to win this tournament, however, destiny put them in this elimination round and only one of the two will be able to continue their way.
