Group B

Egypt 🇪🇬  v Ghana 🇬🇭

Venue:  Felix Houphoiet-Boigny Stadium,  Abidjan

Time: 8 pm

Thursday will be a huge day in the 2023 AFCON as two of the giants of African football clash in Group B.

The Pharaohs of Egypt and Black Stars of Ghana lock horns at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny Stadium in Abidjan. It will be a huge and entertaining game as both teams have a combined 11 AFCON titles.

This is a game that football fans can’t wait to enjoy.

Ghana head coach Chris Houghton has been under immense pressure from Ghanaians after the 2-1 defeat against Cape Verde. He confirmed in his pre-match conference that Westham forward Mohammed Kudus will be assessed but is likely he will start.

Black Stars will be in trouble if they are beaten by Egypt. Another horrible campaign will never be entertained by Ghanaians as the 2021 AFCON is still fresh on their mind.

Egypt’s defence was not up to standard as they defended poorly against Mozambique in the 2-2 draw. Rui Vitoria and his Pharaohs are much more confident ahead of the Ghana game as they have been dreaming from the beginning of the tournament to lift Egypt’s eighth title in the AFCON.

A crunch fixture is expected on Thursday night in Abidjan at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny.
