The Egyptian national football team has continued training in Borg El-Arab near Alexandria ahead of Friday's 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Tunisia.

Heavy rain did not stop preparations for the upcoming clash against the Carthage Eagles at Borg El-Arab Stadium.

Egypt suffered a 0-1 defeat to Tunisia when the teams met 6 December last year in Rades in the first round of the qualifiers, and will seek to avenge their loss and qualify at the top of the group when the teams face off Friday.

The Pharaohs have already secured a place in the Cameroon 2019 African Cup of Nations as they are safe in second place in Group J with nine points, three behind rivals Tunisia.
