Egypt coach Bob Bradley has predicted a very tough play-off between the Pharaohs and the Black Stars of Ghana.
However, the American is optimistic the seven-time African champions will beat the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations losing finalists to make it to the 2014 World Cup.
The Pharaohs were pitted against the west Africans in the last qualifying round for Brazil 2014 in a two-legged fixture to decide who qualifies to the tournament.
“Matches against Ghana will be very tough as the team consists of several players from the biggest European leagues,” Bradley opined right after the draw in Cairo.
“There is no need to worry as we could have been paired with any of the five teams and they are all powerful.”
The winner over both fixtures to be played in October and November will be one of the five African representatives at the World Cup.
