Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mohamed Salah will face off in the second round of qualifying for World Cup 2022, with Gabon and Egypt drawn in the same group.
Gabon will be looking to qualify for their first World Cup, though they have reached the Africa Cup of Nations seven times – most recently in 2017.
Should Gabon reach a debut World Cup Aubameyang will likely be a key reason, with the striker having netted 20 goals for his country in 51 appearances.
Salah, meanwhile, is looking to help Egypt reach the World Cup for a second consecutive time.
The Pharaohs reached the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the country's first appearance at the global showpiece since 1990.
However, with Salah at less than full strength due to a shoulder injury suffered in the 2018 Champions League final, Egypt lost all three of their matches in Group A – though Salah did manage to score two goals in his two games after missing Egypt's opener.
Group D of African World Cup qualifying pits Cameroon and Ivory Coast together along with Mozambique and Malawi, while Nigeria will face Cape Verde Islands, Central African Republic and Liberia in Group C.
The group phase runs from March 2020 until October next year, with the 10 group winners drawn into five two-legged knockout ties to be played next November.
