We are not taking any chances against the Pharaohs,” Pinnick states in chat with

What we are praying for is that our foreign based players give the game their best and win the first leg before going for the final kill in the second leg duel, They (Egypt), might also boast of the form of Salah and Elneny, but we have better quality players whose experience will get us this much needed victory.
