After coming up against Nigeria in the group stage, the Pharaohs meet another continental heavyweight in this tournament

Egypt coach Carlos Queiroz has made positional changes as he tries new methods for Wednesday's Africa Cup of Nations Round of 16 clash against Ivory Coast in Douala.

This is how the Pharaohs line up.

  • Egypt goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy.

    GOALKEEPER - Mohamed El Shenawy

    The Al Ahly gloveman has managed to keep clean sheets in his last two games.

    Now he will be coming up against lethal Ivorian attackers like Sebastien Haller, Nicolas Pepe, Franck Kessie, Wilfried Zaha and others.

  • Omar Kamal, Egypt, December 2021


    Kamal has been moved from the wing-back position to the right side of the midfield.

  • Ahmed Abou El Fotouh of Egypt.

    LEFT-BACK- Ahmed Abou El Fotouh

    The Zamalek man is back after missing the last two matches due to injury.

    His return condemns Al Ahly's Ayman Ashraf to the bench.

  • Ahmed Hegazy of Egypt.

    CENTRE-BACK - Ahmed Hegazy

    As one of the senior players in this side and based on his vast experience, there are high expectations on Hegazy to lead from the back.

  • Mohamed Abdelmonem of Egypt Afcon 2021.

    CENTRE-BACK - Mohamed Abdelmonem

    The 22-year-old was a surprise starter in the last match against Sudan in the absence of Zamalek's Mahmoud Hamdi El Wensh.

    After grabbing the all-important goal which sank Sudan, Abdelmonem has been rewarded with a starting place.

  • Amr El Solia - egypt - arab cup 2021 - qatar

    RIGHT-BACK - Amr El Sulaya

    After occupying the central midfield role in the last three games, the Al Ahly star has been switched to the right-back position.

  • Mohamed Elneny of Egypt.


    The Arsenal midfielder has started all four of Egypt's matches in this tournament but much improvement is expected from him.

  • Hamdi Fathi Yacine Brahimi Egypt Algeria Arab cup 07.12.2021

    LEFT MIDFIELDER - Hamdi Fathi

    Fathi returns to start after coming on from the bench in the last two games where he played as a defensive midfielder.

  • Mohamed Salah

    CENTRE-FORWARD - Mohamed Salah

    The Liverpool star has not been scoring as many goals as he would like so far.

    Perhaps coming up against the Ivorian stars will inspire him to be at his very best.

  • Omar Marmoush of Egypt.

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Omar Marmoush

    Having been used as a forward all along in this tournament, the Stuttgart man drops back to anchor the midfield.

  • Mostafa Mohamed

    ATTACKING MIDFIELDER - Mostafa Mohamed

    The Galatasaray star will not be the centre-forward, a role he has played in the last two matches.
