Zurich is the place where the international friendly match between Portugal and Egypt is going to be contested. Both sides are looking forward to having a good preparation match for the upcoming World Cup.
Portugal managed to snatch the top spot in the group in the very last round in a direct clash against Switzerland. Their 2-0 home victory was enough to go on top and have better head to head score against the rivals. Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads dominated the games when playing in front of their fans as they’ve booked all five wins by allowing only two goals and scoring four times per match in average. Generally, , their attacking work has been excellent and the main reason of being ahead of persistent Switzerland. Current European champions are looking for a good campaign in the World Cup and they are aiming the final rounds of the tournament.
Hector Cuper’s side fount their place among the best national teams in the world by winning the first place in their group. Although everybody considered Ghana as their main rivals, Uganda posed the biggest trouble for the Pharaohs. They were involved in pretty tight matches and although they conceded only four times, they didn’t do much in front of the oppositions’ goal. The only defeat they suffered against Uganda when playing away from home, but their away win against Congo was the key for success.
