The Pharaohs, who lost their place at the top of the group, have no choice but to win in Alexandria if they want to regain poll position and to revive their hopes of reaching the next year’s World Cup in Russia.

Egypt are second in group E with six points, just one point behind Uganda who have seven points.

Despite the loss in Kampala, Pharaohs coach Hector Cuper voiced his confidence in the team, insisting that they still have a good chance of making it through the qualifiers.

“The qualifiers are not over yet, we still have nine points to fight for,” Cuper said at the post-match news conference on Thursday.

Bearing in mind their must-win situation on Tuesday, Cuper has to play with an offensive plan, dropping his trade-mark cautious approach.

Man to Watch

Denis Onyango (Uganda) – Although Egypt didn’t test him that much at Namboole, Onyango was still Uganda Cranes’ best player with three match winning saves.

If the Uganda Cranes are to leave Alexandria with maximum or at least a point, the reigning African Footballer of the Year must be at his mercurial best.

Mohamed Salah (Egypt) – The Liverpool attacker was kept under close watch by Godfrey Walusimbi at Namboole but still had a few decent touches on the ball and also forced a brilliant save from Onyango in the second half.

Playing at home in a make or break game for him, expect a different Salah and if he clicks, the visitors will be in for a long 90 minutes.

FACTS:

This will be the 19th meeting between the two sides – Egypt has won 14, lost 2 and drawn 3
