The Egyptian national football team, led by coach Hossam Hassan, is set to depart from Cairo today, Saturday, heading to Guinea-Bissau. The team is gearing up for a pivotal match against Guinea-Bissau on Monday, part of the fourth round of the African qualifiers for the World Cup finals.

Egypt is riding high after a 2-1 victory over Burkina Faso in the third round of qualifiers on Thursday evening. The Pharaohs are determined to secure another win in the upcoming game to maintain their lead in the group and edge closer to their World Cup dream. The match will take place at the 24 de Setembro Stadium, kicking off at 7:00 PM Cairo time on Monday.

Egypt currently leads Group A in the World Cup qualifiers with 9 points. They launched their qualifying campaign with a dominant 6-0 win over Djibouti in the first round, followed by a 2-0 victory against Sierra Leone in the second round, and their recent triumph over Burkina Faso at Cairo International Stadium.

Guinea-Bissau, on the other hand, is in second place in the group with 5 points. They secured a 1-0 win over Djibouti in the second round of the African qualifiers, drew 1-1 with Burkina Faso in the first round, and recently played to a goalless draw against Ethiopia in the third round at home.

The upcoming match between Egypt and Guinea-Bissau is crucial for both teams. Egypt aims to solidify its top position in the group, while Guinea-Bissau looks to narrow the gap and boost their chances of qualifying for the World Cup. Football fans are eagerly anticipating this high-stakes encounter as the road to the World Cup heats up.
