Egypt will play host to Comoros today at the Cairo International Stadium in the last group game of the AFCON qualifying series. The team drew away to Kenya last Thursday after playing a 1-1 draw which ensured their qualification.
Comoros made history by securing qualification for their first major tournament. The team played out a goalless draw at home against Togo which saw them book their spot at the tournament next year.
The first leg clash between the sides in November 2019 was their first and only meeting to date and to the credit of Comoros, they secured an impressive goalless draw against their illustrious host.
Both sides are currently on a good run of form which played a key role in securing their qualification to the Africa Cup of Nations with Egypt remaining unbeaten in seven international games since suffering a 1-0 defeat to South Africa in the second round of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Their record stands at 4 wins and 3 draws while Comoros also have an identical record from their last seven international games.
Both teams will be expected to use this match to test other players since they have both secured qualification.
