It is one of the clashes of the playoffs of the World Cup 2022 in Africa. And it opposes tonight Egypt to Senegal, the two finalists of the CAN 2021.
Beaten by the Lions during this final, the Pharaohs have the opportunity to take their revenge. And it will be with El Shenawy, titular in the goals. Mohamed Salah and Mohamed Elneny are also in the starting 11.
On the side of Senegal, it was decided to field the same team, exactly the one that played and won the final of the last CAN.
Ismaïla Sarr, who was injured against Manchester United and has been absent from official matches for a month, has fully recovered from his hamstring. The Watford winger can take his place and start the game alongside Famara Diédhiou and Sadio Mané. Edouard Mendy also keeps his place in goal, as well as Bouna Sarr, lined up at right-back.
Here are the starting lineups:
El Shenawy – El Wensh, Gaber, Abdelmoneim, Fatouh, Fathy, El Soulia, Elneny, Mohamed, Salah.
Mendy – Bouna Sarr, Koulibaly, Abdou Diallo, Ciss – Kouyate, N. Mendy, Idrissa Gueye – I. Sarr, Diédhiou, Mané
