Kalidou Koulibaly: Egypt are at a disadvantage
“The absence of [Egypt’s] centerbacks is a big problem for them. They’re missing some very good players.”
Confident comments from Carlos Quieroz
“If we get just 5% here in Senegal, the boys and I will make magic and miracles.”
Your Evening Standard prediction
Senegal aren’t a team renowned for scoring goals and, with Egypt having such a fierce counter-attack, it’s hard to see them keeping the back door shut when pressing forward.
1-1 draw, Egypt to progress.
