Trézéguet scored an extra-time goal to send Egypt through against Morocco, after Mo Salah had levelled the scores in Yaoundé on Sunday. That isn't enough to earn the Aston Villa man a place in the starting 11 tonight, with the usual front three of Salah, Mohamed and Marmoush getting the nod. Mohamed Abou Gabal, who started the last game between the sticks but had to come off injured in extra time, is fit enough to play, but Ahmed Hegazi has not recovered in time. The Pharaohs are yet to impress so far, but they wouldn't be the first international side to go all the way without ever really finding top gear.

Collins Fai also suffered an injury in the previous round but is fit enough to start for Cameroon tonight, while the dangerous duo of Karl Toko Ekambi and Vincent Aboubakar will give the Egyptian defence plenty to worry about. Lyon's Toko Ekambi and his strike partner have scored 11 goals between them, with no opponent managing to keep a clean sheet against the Indomitable Lions so far. Can Egypt be the first?
