Mohamed Salah will skipper his nation when Egypt vs Ghana kicks off tonight at 8pm GMT.
The Pharaohs had a disappointing start to their AFCON campaign with a 2-2 draw to Mozambique in the opening group stage match.
Despite not playing in his regular position on the right-wing, Salah was still able to influence proceedings with an assist and a stoppage time penalty conversion.
The 31-year-old has a chance to cement his legacy as an all-time great with a triumphant AFCON campaign.
Salah came agonizingly close in 2022, but eventually lost on penalties to Sadio Mane’s Senegal.
Ghana will prove a tough task at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
The match will be broadcast live in the UK on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football. The show begins at 7:55 p.m.
Using the Sky Go app, those who have a subscription to Sky Sports may also watch the action online via livestream.
SuperSport, who cater for an African audience, will also broadcast the clash live.
Fans watching in America can watch the game on Bein Sports, with coverage set to start at 3 pm ET.
In terms of injuries and absentees, it is not thought that Egypt has any fresh injury concerns ahead of tonight’s.
However, Ghana and West Ham star Mohammed Kudus could not feature against Cape Verde owing to an injury sustained while with The Hammers.
Ghana coach Chris Hughton explained on Wednesday that Kudus would undergo a late fitness assessment prior to the clash:
“We will continue to assess him.”
“He has trained the last few days, but we will assess him, as I say, today and tomorrow and make a decision tomorrow.”
Kudus is a dangerous player and the Black Stars would admittedly be weaker without him.
Arsenal man Thomas Partey is also absent from the squad altogether as he battles with ongoing injuries this season.
