    Hello,

    In a previous post you stated that a win might not be enough to secure Egypt’s position in pot 1 for the upcoming draw. However, in this post it states that a win will be enough to secure the pot 1 position. I just wanted to know what is the latest update before the new ranking come up next week.

    Thank you
