According to the draw held yesterday, Thursday, Egypt will face in the second round the winner of the Eswatini and Botswana match, which will be held in the first round.

Hossam Abdel Majid, the defender of Zamalek, was one of those who got the opportunity and became a key player in the ranks of Zamalek, as well as Mohamed Ashraf, the left back of Al-Ahly, and he is a duo that is strongly nominated to play a key role in the defense line.
