Egypt vs Ghana: Prediction
Ghana will be facing an upward improving Egyptian side come Sunday. The Egyptian are an hungry side, as they are in search of their first World cup ticket since Italian 1990, the Ghanaian on the other hand are in search of their 4th consecutive world cup ticket. This makes the game evenly poised, however the 12th man advantage adds more advantage to the Egyptian winning this game, as they tend to be more dangerous playing at home.
To summarize, a slim win for Egypt is very much on the cards.
