The Egyptian national team is in great trouble before the final round of the World Cup in Qatar

It seems that the Egyptian team’s uprising in the last two matches of the World Cup qualifiers for Qatar, by achieving two consecutive victories, did not reassure its fans as much as it increased their fear and anxiety about what awaits the “Pharaohs” in the decisive third round.

It is expected that the Egyptian team will reach the decisive third round of the African qualifiers for the World Cup “Qatar 2022”, as it needs to win one of the next two matches against Angola and Gabon, in order to qualify officially to the final stage, which will consist of ten teams.

According to the rules of the Confederation of African Football, the ten finalists will be divided during the draw scheduled for the end of this year into two levels, the first containing the top five in the FIFA classification, and the second holding the five lowest ranked.

This will put the Egyptian team in great trouble, as the “Pharaohs” will fall in the second level, which will force them to face one of the big five in Africa, namely Senegal, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Nigeria.

Another rule that CAF will adopt during the draw for the decisive round may also complicate Egypt’s mission to reach the Qatar World Cup, and this rule states that the teams ranked in the first level will benefit from playing the second leg match on its soil.

Egypt has the only solution to get out of this predicament, but not in its hands, is the failure of one of the teams ranked in the first level to qualify for the decisive round, and of course with the obligatory qualification of the Egyptian team.

Currently, Senegal and Morocco have qualified for that stage, Tunisia and Algeria are close, while Nigeria faces the threat of exclusion.

And two rounds before the end of the second round competitions, Nigeria occupies the top of Group C with 9 points, only two points behind Cape Verde, which it will host in the last round in a crucial match.
