According to the Egyptian Football Association, the stadium completed in 2009 for the Fifa U20 World Cup with an all-seated capacity of 30,000 will host the crucial encounter.

Swaziland lost 2-0 at home to Tunisia to sit in the third position in Group J – and they would be hoping to shock Javier Aguirre’s men.

The return leg holds three days later at the Mavuso Sports Centre, Manzini.
