The Egyptian national team gathered in the military's Air Defence stadium on Tuesday to begin their closed preparation camp for the Ghana World Cup play-off next week.

The play-off's second leg will take place on 19 November at the Air Defence stadium, located in Cairo's Fifth Settlement. The first leg in Kumasi shocked the Pharaohs with a humiliating 6-1 away defeat.

The seven-time Africa Cups of Nations winners are playing a Zambia friendly on Thursday, amidst trainings for the anticipated clash.

Egypt is desperately biding for their first qualification ticket to the world's most prestigious football tournament since 1990.
