The teams will meet Sunday in Borg Al- Arab Stadium, with start time scheduled for 4 p.m. GMT (11 a.m. ET). The match will be broadcast in both nations and will also be available for those watching live online (a link to the streaming video can be found below).
That leaves Ghana in something of a must-win situation, while Egypt has the opportunity to jump out to a five-point lead over their rival.
“A victory for the Egyptians could mean a 5 point lead for the seven time African champions which could prove irrecoverable for the Black Stars,” Joy Online noted. “This will be the first of three meetings between both countries with their paths set to cross in Gabon next year and a second leg of the World Cup qualifier in Ghana.”
Watching the Ghana vs. Egypt football match live online may be the only way for many fans to see the match. The Borg Al-Arab Stadium will be filled to capacity for Sunday’s match as all 70,000 tickets sold out, GhanaWeb reported.
Despite the stakes at hand, Egypt’s players said they are trying to approach it just like any other match, Pulse reported. Striker Bassem Morsy said his team will need an even approach in order to grab the much-needed points.
“We are all doing our best to win this match, however it’s just like any other game,” Morsy told BeIN Sports. “I’m willing to remain goalless for a year, but the most important thing is winning the match. I could provide assists for Salah or Trezeguet or it could be the other way around as long as it helps the team achieve victory.”
