Kick-off: 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Port Gentil.
Uganda will be hoping to put up an improved performance in this fixture, having offered very little in the 1-0 defeat to Ghana. They will be facing Egypt at Stade de Port Gentil on Saturday night.
Egypt will continue their quest for 8th African Championship, having drawn goalless against Mali in the first game. They were disappointed not to have scored after squandering many chances. They hope to buckle up in this game.
Uganda kicked off the competition with a defeat to Ghana, they were unable to find the back of the net in the game. They are the least rated team in the group but they I’ll strive to win this game to change the tides.
