Our football match prediction:
Against all odds, Ghana sit in third place in Group E ahead of their last group game in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers. The Black Stars have been struggling to find their best form in the qualifiers and, as a result, they will not participate at the next year’s tournament in Russia. The Ghanaians have little to play for in Sunday’s football match against Egypt, but, no doubt, they want to give fans some cheer. Crvena Zvezda attacker Richmond Boakye, who impressed in a 5-1 win over Congo, is likely to lead the line for the hosts and the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Egypt, on the other hand, qualified for the World Cup finals thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 win over Congo and they will be looking to put icing on the cake on a very successful campaign with a victory over Ghana. A lively contest is on the horizon and we predict that fans will see a real football festival at Baba Yara Stadium.

Highlighted Team (Egypt):
Egypt are an African football team that plays their home games at Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria. Over the years Egypt have established themselves as the most successful national team in Africa and you should bear in mind that they won their seventh Africa Cup of Nations trophy in 2010. The Pharaohs participated at the World Cup finals on two occasions (1934 and 1990) and they failed to make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament. Egypt suffered a 4-2 loss to Hungary on their World Cup debut and it has to be noted that the African team scored no more than one goal at the 1990 FIFA World Cup. Ahmed Hassan is the player with the most caps for the Egyptian national team (184), while Hossam Hassan is the team’s top scorer (68). The colour of Egypt’s home kit is red and white and the Pharaohs play their away games in white shits and black shorts.
