In their final group-stage match at Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium on Monday night, Egypt takes on Cape Verde with the goal of securing a spot in the Africa Cup of Nations knockout stages.
Even if they lose this game, Cape Verde will still have an amazing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations because they will guarantee their spot in the knockout stages.
Egypt, on the other hand, has found it difficult to establish themselves in the competition thus far.
This was evident in their opening match last Sunday, where they were drawn 2-2 by Mozambique, the outsider in their group.
With both matches in Group B beginning off simultaneously, the Pharaohs will consider this as a must-win assignment, having only managed to gain two points from their opening two encounters in the campaign.
Here is how both teams line up
Cape Verde Starting XI
Jose, Sanchez, Evans Costa, Correira, Tavares, Rodrigues, Tavares, Semedo, Rocha Santos, Graca, Pina
Egypt Starting XI
El-Shanawy, Hany, Fathy, Ashour, Elfetouh, Attia, Mohamed, Marmoush, Abdelmoneim, Sayed
