The gaffer’s assistant Emiliano Té took charge of the team in his absence.

Also the quintet  of Nanu, Alfa Semedo,  Mimito Biai,  Maurice Gomis and Joseph Mendes who all tested positive to Covid-19 on the eve of Egypt’s  game are also expected to   rejoin their teammates  ahead of the game against the Super Eagles.

Guinea-Bissau  need to beat the Super Eagles  to have a chance of securing a place in the Round of 16.

Nigeria top the group with six points, while Egypt occupy second position with three points.  Guinea-Bissau and Sudan have one point each.
