Under the helm of American coach Bob Bradley, Egypt's national team flew to Conakry, capital of Guinea, Thursday morning ahead of a game with Guinea's national team in the African World Cup Qualifiers.

The Pharaohs are scheduled to face Guinea in the second round of Group G in the tournament Sunday.

The Egyptian team will arrive to Morocco; then they will travel directly to Conakry and launch their training sessions in Guinea on Friday morning.

The winners of seven African Cup of Nations (CAN) trophies started their bid to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with a 2-0 home victory over Mozambique on Friday, while Guinea beat Zimbabwe 1-0 in Harare two days later.
