The match is underway 


16:15 "Jordan deserve their place in the quarters; they are a strong team. Chances are equal between Egypt and Jordan," Queiroz told the pre-match news conference.

16:00 Jordan had the upper hand when they last met Egypt in a friendly game in 2016, securing a 1-0 victory.

15:40 Egypt’s starting line up: Mohamed El Shennawi – Ahmed Yassin, Mahmoud “El Wensh” Hamdi, Omar Kamal, Ahmed Fatouh - Amr El Sulaya, Hamdi Fathi, Huessin Faisal, Mostafa Fathi, Ahmed Sayed Zizo- Marwan Hamdi

15:30 Jordan booked a last-eight berth after finishing second in Group C with six points, three behind leaders Morocco.

15:00 Egypt are also expected to play without a classic playmaker in the absence of Afsha, with Queiroz preferring to field a lone striker supported by two wide wingers.

14:30 In midfield, Queiroz might have better options to replace Ashraf, who excelled when deployed in an unfamiliar central midfield position in a 4-0 Group D victory over Sudan. Zamalek's versatile midfielder Ahmed Zizo is likely to replace him.

14:00 Rookie defender Ahmed Yassin took Hegazi's place in the heart of Egypt's defence against Algeria but his lack of experience was evident as he struggled in the face of some attacks.

13:30 Ahly playmaker Magdi Afsha recovered from a minor complaint that ruled him out of the Algeria clash but Queiroz also said he won't be rushed back into action.

13:00 The Pharaohs will have to do without defenders Ahmed Hegazi and Ayman Ashraf, who were both taken off in the 1-1 group-stage draw with Algeria on Tuesday after picking up knocks.
12:00 Egypt coach Carlos Queiroz is facing a selection headache due to the absence of a key trio as his side take on Jordan in the FIFA Arab Cup quarter-final at Al-Janoub Stadium in Qatar's Al-Wakrah on Saturday.

Stay tuned as match is due to start at 17:00 Cairo time (GMT+2)
