Egypt are struggling with two absentees ahead of Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations clash with Ivory Coast.

A quarter-final place is on the line in Douala as the seven-time champions look to do at least one better than their shock outing at this stage in Cairo three years ago.

Akram Tawfik and Ahmed Fatouh are out after leaving the Pharaohs Group opener with Nigeria through injury.

Carlos Quieroz will once again give Mohamed Salah the reins of attack, presumably alongside Mostafa Mohamed and Omar Marmoush.

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny is expected to be joined by Amr El Solia and Abdallah Said in the center of the park. The pair have started each of the last two matches after Trezequet and Hamdi Fathi were dropped following the Nigeria defeat.

Ahmed Hegazy will probably have Mohamed Abdelmonem with him in defense, after his winning goal against Sudan last time out.

Predicted Egypt XI: El Shenawy; Abdel Wahed, Hegazy, Abdelmonem, Ashraf; Elneny, Said, El Solia; Salah, Marmoush, Mohamed.
