Egypt and Tunisia have both sealed qualification for the anticipated African competition in Cameroon after collecting nine and 12 points respectively, going through ahead of eSwatini and Niger.
The Pharaohs and Carthage Eagles had faced each other in the qualifiers’ group opener in Rades in June 2017, where the hosts came out victorious with a 1-0 win.
