First time CAF holder, Senegal will visit Egypt in Cairo to renew supremacy drawn from the last Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) which the latter lost on penalty shoot out.
Ghana is hosting her neighbour, Nigeria in Accra. The match is important to the duel as their fans are always at logger-heads to show the strongest is. The Super Eagles, who have striker Victor Osimhen on the team, only missed one World Cup so far and that was in 1994.
The Eagles – Mali and Tunisia will lock horns in Bamako while the Leopards of DRC will play against Moroccan Lions in Kinshasa.
