Egypt are set to have the upper hand in their 2021 AFCON qualifier against Kenya at the Borg El Arab Stadium. Egypt are tipped to have too much quality for the struggling Kenyans.

Egypt Form


Egypt head into Thursday’s Group G opener off the back of a 1-0 victory over Liberia in a friendly in October. After a goalless first half, Hamdi Fathi came off the bench to grab the winner six minutes from time.

The Pharaohs have been in good form lately having won their two matches since crashing out of the 2019 AFCON on home soil. Hossam El Badry’s men are unbeaten in their last five AFCON qualifiers, claiming four wins in that run.

Egypt News


Mohamed Salah has not featured for the team since the AFCON tournament in Egypt and is injured here. Trezeguet is in the squad and is likely to start in attack.

Kenya Form


Kenya suffered a 1-0 defeat to Mozambique in a friendly back in October. They were punished for their profligacy in front of goal, failing to make their six attempts on target count.

The East Africans have struggled lately, failing to win any of their last five matches. Francis Kimanzi's men are also winless in their last 14 away matches in AFCON qualifying, in a poor run stretching back to 2006.

Kenya News


Striker John Avire has been handed a recall to the team after missing the defeat to Mozambique in October. He is in contention to feature in attack alongside Michael Olunga while Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama should start in midfield.

Egypt vs Kenya Head to Head
