Two points separate these two teams in Group A.

Egypt are currently topping the charts in Group A with two wins from the opening two fixtures of the 2026 FIFA World Cup African Qualifiers. They secured a dominant 6-0 win over Djibouti to open their account followed by a 2-0 win over Sierra Leone. However, they had a poor AFCON, which led to Rui Vitoria losing his place in the dugout and being replaced by Hossam Hassan.

Burkina Faso are languishing in the second spot in Group A with four points from the opening two matches and are trailing behind Egypt by two points. A win here will move them back to the top spot. In the two matches they have played so far, they started the campaign with a 1-1 draw against Guinea-Bissau followed by a 3-0 win over Ethiopia. They will now face Egypt and Sierra Leone in these qualifiers for June. 

Kick-Off:

Friday, 7 June at 12:30 AM IST

Location: Cairo International Stadium

Form:

Egypt (in all competitions): L-W-D-D-D

Burkina Faso (in all competitions): L-L-D-W-W

Player to Watch

Mohamed Salah (Egypt) 

Mohamed Salah had a productive year with Liverpool thanks to his goal-scoring exploits and ability to take on defenders. In addition to scoring 18 goals for the team, he also has assisted 14 others. As he is finally back with the national side of Egypt, the fans will get to see his majestic left foot in action in these qualifiers. 

Dango Ouattara (Burkina Faso) 

Dango Ouattara had a mixed campaign with Bournemouth in the Premier League having shown plenty of promise for the team. He is a threat from either wing as he uses his pace and trickery to beat defenders at ease. Ouattara has an incredible record for the national team having scored seven goals in 15 appearances. With Bertrand Traore injured, he will be given the role of posing a threat to the opposing team.
