The hopes of Egypt reviving their dreams of progressing in the on-going Africa Cup of Nations have received a boost ahead of their destiny-shaping match with Guinea Bissau this Saturday.
Guinea-Bissau national team received a heavy blow ahead of the clash as they were hit with a COVID-19 outbreak 24 hours before the game.
Affected are the team’s first choice goalkeeper, Maurice Gomis and their forward Joseph Mendes have both tested positive in the last swab test ahead of the game with Egypt.
Three more absences have been confirmed as Nanu, Alfa Semedo, and Mimito Biai are yet to fully recover, having also missed the Sudan game.
Head coach Baciro Candé will also miss the confrontation as his test was positive as well.
