PREVIEW 2019 AFCON: Egypt vs Zimbabwe - Hosts eye winning start

Africa will begin its flagship African Cup of Nations with hosts Egypt starting the battle with Zimbabwe at the Cairo International Stadium.

Egypt missed the chance to land the trophy in the last edition, thanks to an inspired Cameroonian side.
 
 
The country's poster boy and EPL joint top goalscorer Mohammed Salah will be carrying the 7-times winners on his shoulders and make sure the title remains in the country.
 
 
Zimbabwe heads into the clash on the back of a draw against Tanzania and have a mountain to climb if they are to upstage the Egyptians.
 
 
The Pharaohs have won friendlies against Tanzania and Guinea and hope to start with all three points in front of the home fans in Cairo on Friday.
 
 
Zimbabwe has managed to come out on top against Egypt only once with the Egyptians winning 5 of those encounters.
 
 
Its safe to say Egypt will go ahead and pick their first three points in the opening encounter today.
