Egypt will be expected to seal their place in the last 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations as they face Sudan tonight.

An opening match defeat to Nigeria put Egypt on the back foot, but Mohamed Salah got his country back on the right track as they edged to a 1-0 win over Guinea-Bissau.

Victory over Sudan would send Egypt through as runners-up, but a defeat would see their opponents leapfrog them and potentially lead to a calamitous group-stage exit. Sudan may be huge underdogs, but their draw against Guinea-Bissau means a shock victory would almost certainly send them into the last 16.

Having seen Ghana slip up against Comoros in their final group match, sending the Black Stars crashing out, Egypt will be taking nothing for granted as they target the knockout stages.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Egypt vs Sudan is scheduled for an 7pm GMT kick-off tonight - Wednesday, January 19, 2022.

Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde will host the match.

Egypt are not known as a free-scoring side, despite having Salah in their ranks, and they have scored just one goal so far this tournament.

They should have too much quality for Sudan though, and book their place in the last 16 without too much fuss.
