Egypt will take on Morocco in the fourth and the final quarter-final clash of the 2017 African Cup of Nations (Afcon) at Stade de Port-Gentil, Port-Gentil on Sunday (29 January).
The Pharaohs have won the tournament for a record seven times and they will be looking to clinch their eighth title this year in Gabon. Egypt's last success came in 2006, when they defeated Ivory Coast in the final.
Hector Cuper saw his side make it to the last eight after finishing on top of Group D. After starting the tournament with a goalless draw against Mali, they registered two 1-0 victories over Uganda and Ghana.
Abdalla El Said scored the winner in the 89th minute against Uganda, while former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah scored the only goal in the 11th minute against Ghana. This allowed them to sit on top of Group D.
Morocco, on the other hand, were the runners-up of Group C, behind leaders DR Congo. The Atlas Lions were successful in finishing ahead of the defending champions Ivory Coast and Togo.
Herve Renard will be pushing for a win against one of the tournament favoruties in the fourth quarter-final clash on Sunday. A victory over Egypt will boost their confidence for the semi-final fixture.
