They are drawn in Group J alongside Tunisia, Niger and Swaziland.

Coach Hector Cuper will reveal the team’s squad two days before the training camp starts as he waits for Al Ahly, Zamalek, Smouha and Al Masry to finish their matches in the current round of CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup.

The Black Stars will host Egypt between 9TH-12TH November 2017 for the return fixture of the 2018 World Cup which will be held in Russia.
