Egypt - The Pharaoh

Defending champions the Pharaohs of the Nile will be going to Ghana to defend the trophy they won on home soil in 2006. The five-time African champions will be looking to add to the number of times they have won this trophy and will also be one of the favourites to win it again. No country has been able to defend trophy back to back since Ghana last did it some 42 years ago. Egypt will be looking to erase that record and win it back to back again. Star players to look for include Mohammed Barakat, Ahmed Hassan, Al Hadari, Wael Goma and Mohammed Aboutrika.
