African champions Egypt look set to secure a third consecutive victory in World Cup qualifying but will have to make do with a patched up strike force to beat Malawi away tomorrow.
Egypt lead a list of heavyweight contenders who can take a step closer to advancing from the first phase of African qualifiers for the 2010 finals. Angola, Cameroon, Ghana, Mali and Nigeria are all away this weekend as they seek to maintain their 100 percent starts to the first round group phase.
Egypt's Group 12 hopes have been hit by the withdrawal of striker Emad Moteab with a neck injury and lingering concerns over the fitness of Amr Zaki (knee). Hamburg striker Mohamed Zidan has already been suspended by the Egyptians, who believe he faked injury to pull out of the month-long series of World Cup qualifiers.
A total of 23 World Cup qualifying matches are scheduled across the continent as 47 teams chase 20 places in the final group phase later this year. The 12 group winners and eight best second-placed finishers advance.
Angola go into their Group 3 qualifier against Uganda striker Flavio and winger Gilberto injury worries, while Mali meet Sudan without injured midfielder Momo Sissoko and defender Souleymane Diamoutene. - Reuters
