Egypt is preparing to face its counterpart Cameroon, today at nine in the evening, in the match that brings them together in the semi-finals of the African Nations Cup.

Egypt qualified at the expense of Morocco 2-1, while Cameroon beat Gambia 2-0, in the quarter-finals of the African Nations Cup.

Cameroon has not been subjected to a real test so far with its career in the Nations Cup, as it is the easiest of the semi-final teams, and despite that, the Lions suffered on the defensive side as they conceded four goals.

Most Receiving Targets:

Cameroon did not manage to get a clean sheet in the tournament except in one match against Gambia, which brought them together in the quarter-finals, which ended in favor of the Lions with two goals without a response.

Despite the ease of its campaign in the tournament, Cameroon has conceded four goals, making it the team that has conceded the most goals in the semi-finals.

Most goals:

Despite the offensive power of the Cameroon team in the Nations Cup, where it is the strongest attack, scoring 11 goals in five matches so far, it came through only two players, Vincent Aboubakar (6 goals), Karl Ekambi (5 goals).

The danger of the Cameroon national team is limited to the duo Abu Bakr and Ikambi, which the Lions team plan on, and if the Egyptian team succeeds and stops the danger of the duo, the Pharaohs will succeed in preventing the danger on their goal.

Egypt has conceded two goals so far in the African Cup of Nations, and managed to come out with clean sheets in 3 matches.

Reliance on limbs and long balls:

The Cameroon team relies on the attacking duo, Aboubacar and Ekambi, in crosses from the sides or long balls, due to the strength of the duo in headers, and a station to switch from defense to attack.

The two backs and the chance of Salah and Marmoush:

The attacking plan of the Cameroon national team depends on the progress of the two fullbacks to support and create opportunities from crosses, and thus there are large spaces in the defense line.

In previous matches, the Cameroon team suffered from the large spaces behind the full-backs in the rebounding balls, and there is a great opportunity in front of Mohamed Salah, the right wing, and Omar Marmoush, the left wing.

Senegal is waiting for the winner of Egypt and Cameroon in the final match of the African Nations Cup, which is scheduled for next Sunday.
