Venue: Cairo International Stadium

Egypt will be without their Liverpool star Mohamed Salah when they take on Togo in the third round of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers tonight (Saturday) at Cairo International Stadium.

The Liverpool winger has been ruled out of the game after testing positive for the COVID-19 on Friday and will remain in Cairo in self-isolation until he is cured.

The two sides, Egypt and Togo are scheduled to meet again in the fourth round of the Africa Cup of Nations’ qualifiers on 17 November.

Egypt coach Hossam El-Badry has called a full-strength squad for the Togo clash with the participation of foreign-based players, including Arsenal’s midfielder Mohamed Elneny, Aston Villa’s winger Mahmoud Trezeguet and Olympiacos’ in-form striker Ahmed ‘Kouka’ Hassan.

Togo French coach Claude Le Roy recently expressed his anger about the narrow time between the matches against Egypt in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Match Preview

“How could we play two games within three days only? This doesn’t happen even in Europe during the current circumstances. We have to give the players a break, the situation is very tense and I am angry, but we will fight,” Le Roy told On-Time Sports TV channel.

Egypt who are currently third in the Group G ranking with two points – have no other option but to win when they host Togo whose place is in the group’s bottom. They need to improve their ranking as only the top two will advance to the African Nations’ Cup finals, which will take place in January 2022 in Cameroon.

Comoros top the group with five points, two ahead of Kenya after the two teams drew 1-1 in the third round on Wednesday.
