Can A Salah-less Egypt Side Overcome Lowly-Ranked Niger?

All league matches around the world have been put on hold as the international break comes into the fold. This weekend, the qualifiers for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations is in full swing as the group stages are expected to keep the supporters glued to their screens.

In this week’s Soccer 6, we take a look at two encounters that will be on the menu. Egypt face a 103rd-placed Niger on Saturday, September 8, while Group F leaders, Ghana take on Kenya.

Here’s all you need to know as you to make your predictions with Soccer 6, as Ajax Cape Town's Thamsanqa Teyise also gets in on the debate! 

 

Egypt v Niger (2019 AFCON Qualifiers)

Match 9 Soccer 10 Pool 7 Sept S10 V2

FIFA Rankings: Egypt 65th & Niger 103rd

Useful facts: Although their journey in the recent FIFA World Cup in Russia didn’t go as hoped, due in part to starting their campaign without the services of their talisman Mohamed Salah, The Pharaohs will hope to have a smooth run in the qualifying stages of the AFCON tournament. They are well known and well respected on the continent, having won the tournament seven times. Lowly-ranked Niger are not expected to provide much of a challenge to an Egypt side playing at home, but a shocking result can never be ruled out in the game of football.

Ghana v Kenya (2019 AFCON Qualifiers) 

Match 1 Soccer 10 Pool 7 Sept S10 V2

FIFA Rankings: Ghana 45th & Kenya 112th 

Useful facts: The Black Stars, currently atop Group F, will hope to maintain consistency when they host third-placed Kenya on Saturday afternoon. They made their intentions clear in their opening game when they thrashed Ethiopia 5-0 and the Harambee Stars will be wary of their star quality. However, Kenya will still be out to redeem themselves after they lost 2-1 to Sierra Leone in the group opener.
