On Saturday, the Egyptian football U-20 national team will face Senegal in the final round of the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations group stage in Cairo International Stadium.

Tomorrow's match will have the final word on the team's fate in the tournament as the victory could lead the team to the knockouts and will be qualified as one of the two best place 3 holders in their groups. 

Egypt’s hopes to reach the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations next round suffered a huge blow after losing 1-0 to Nigeria at Cairo stadium on Wednesday.

The Pharaohs wasted a number of easy goalscoring chances during the full 90 minutes of the game that saw complete domination from the Egyptian side.

Solomon Agbalaka punished the hosts for their lack of concentration, scoring the winner for Nigeria in the 71 st minute with a nice header.

The loss left the Pharaohs third in the Group with a single point after being held to a goalless draw by Mozambique in the tournament opener on Sunday.

Senegal who defeated Mozambique 3-0 earlier on Wednesday are leading the Group with maximum six points and have guaranteed their place in the next round.
