Egypt
VS
Jamaica
According to FIFA ranking, Egypt are ranked 24th in the world, second in Africa and I quite agree, at least the continental rank to an appreciable extent. They are consistent side in the continent built around their local league players who have proven so far to be able to hold their own. However, they failed to make it to the world cup where they lost heavily by 7-3 aggregate to another continent’s firepower - Ghana. Their returned 2-1 win over Ghana was not enough to overcome the first leg’s 6-1 heavy loss. It was the only loss by Egypt throughout the qualifying campaign as they had steered through a perfect qualifying campaign winning all previous 7 matches in the qualifier. Eight players from Ahly and Zamalek returned to Cairo to join their teams due to weekend continental club fixtures but their replacements are expected to hold their own. With an improved option in attack, Mohamed El-Shennawy, Ali Gabr, Ahmed Dweidar, Mahmoud Ezzat, Saleh Gomaa, Ahmed Hassan "Kouka", Ahmed Sherwida and Salah Amin have been called up as replacements to help coach Gharib, who was appointed the Pharaohs' head coach last November, for his second victory as he beat Bosnia 2-0 in March before throwing away a two-goal lead against Chile to lose 3-2.

 

Jamaica are ranked 81st in the world with just one appearance so far at the world cup (1998). They are coming off two consecutive losses against Serbia (2-1) and Switzerland (1-0) but coach Winfried Shafer has expressed he is not disappointed in his team and that they want to become a better team, game by game. “We are already preparing for the Caribbean Cup, and we take that serious. This time it wasn't about winning, but about achieving a number of individual and specific team successes, important steps, and I'm proud to say that we are able to do that," Schäfer said. Norwich City striker Jamar Loza and Montego Bay United center forward Dino Williams, Goalkeeper Ryan Thompson who has played for Jamaica at the Under 20 level and has played in Europe and presently in the North American Soccer League have all joined the camp while players, Demar Phillips (65/12 – team’s highest cap plaayaer), Darren Mattocks (13/3), Dwayne Miller (main goalkeeper 32/0) and Andre Blake (second goalkeeper 4/0) had to return to their respective clubs.

 

Friendly to be played in Matchroom Stadium, Leyton London, England. Egypt are seeking continental redemption ahead of the nation’s cup qualifiers and have more quality players (marshalled by Chelsea’s Mohammed Salah) capable of winning the reggae boys.

Like I said... 8players from Egypt are excused because of continental engagement but the ones called as replacements are equally strong. I figured out the odds might rise but Egypt's win is well worth the shot

Does it say anything to you? Bookies probably have better news that you and I.
