EGYPT TEAM SUMMARY
After the group stage first round defeat by Nigeria (0-1), Egypt rallied with thoughts of winning Guinea-Bissau in Sudan and with the same score of 1-0. No spark in the nominal guest game. No desire to win. It seems that the team in every game plays because it is necessary, and not to go as far as possible and compete for the Cup victory.
IVORY COAST TEAM SUMMARY
Côte d’Ivoire has not lost on this Caen. In this matchup, the nominal hosts are the minimal favorites. But it’s not that simple, as the next opponent is not one to beat and will definitely try to take the Ivorians out. It all depends on the state of mind of the national team in this match.

They wanna win if they have to
The Egyptian team finished the group stage in second place overall, having lost in their debut against Nigeria by the minimum difference, beating Guinea in the second game by the minimum difference and finally qualified for the round of 16 by beating Sudan by the same scoreline from the previous two matches, a situation which placed them with 6 points out of 9 and guaranteed them a place in the round of 16. What is worrying is that Egypt struggled to do damage as their duels were very close and despite a good defensive level, the attack failed to perform as well as their opponents , so the key for them will be having the best defense and therefore counterattacking.
In search of victory
The Ivory Coast national team qualified for the round of 16 as first in Group D, having obtained 7 points out of a possible 9. -2 draw with Sierra Leone and in the last match of the group stage they beat Algeria with a resounding 3-1 win. Now they will face Egypt, a side who finished second in their group and who will be looking to cause them problems in this qualifying round.
