Team news & rosters

PositionCameroon roster
Goalkeepers Efala, Epassy, Omossola, A. Onana
Defenders Ebosse, Moukoudi, Ngadeu-Ngadjui, Oyongo, Mbaizo, Fai, Castelletto, Onguene, Tolo
Midfielders Zambo Anguissa, Gouet, Kunde, Hongla, J. Onana, Lea Siliki, Neyou

Forwards

Ngamaleu, N'Jie, Bahoken, Aboubakar, Bassogog, Toko Ekambi, Choupo-Moting, Ganago

Cameroon won't need to be told just what a triumph on home soil at Afcon would mean for the country - and they'll take heart from the fact that they have previous success when it comes to toppling bigger foes.

With a wealth of European-based talent at their disposal - like Karl Toko Ekambi, who has delivered some heroic performances already - they may enter this match with all the trump cards on the table.

Predicted Cameroon starting XI: A. Onana; Fai, Castelletto, Ngadeu-Ngadjui, Tolo; Hongla, Gouet, Zambo Anguissa, Ngamaleu; Toko Ekambi, Aboubakar.

PositionEgypt roster
Goalkeepers El Shenawy, Abou Gabal, Sobhy, Gad
Defenders Abdelmonem, Kamal, Hegazi, Ashraf, El Fotouh, Hamdy, Alaa, Tawfik, Dawoud
Midfielders El Solia, Fathy, Trezeguet, Ashour, Sobhi, Elneny, Lasheen, El Said, Sayed
Forwards Sherif, Salah, Mohamed, Marmoush, Adel, Hamdy

The sting of defeat five years ago still haunts Egypt, and their failure to deliver subsequently on home soil in the last edition remains a sticking point for Afcon's most successful nation ever.

But the chance to earn a spot of redemption looms large here - and amid a mostly domestic group of players, it will be up to the talisman of Liverpool's Mohamed Salah to help give them the edge.

Predicted Egypt starting XI: Abou Gabal; Kama;, Hegazi, Abdelmonem, El Fotouh; El Solia, Elneny, Ashraf; Salah, Mohamed, Marmoush.
