Alongside that is Burundi and Guinea who meet still with a chance to move on. Burundi can catch Madagascar with a win and a Madagascar loss, while Guinea can still grab third place but need all three points to even sniff a chance of advancing on the third place table.

Egypt leads the group and has already secured advancement to the knockout stage but still has work to do to lock down the top spot as Uganda is two points back and can leap the hosts with a win. Zimbabwe can catch Uganda only with a big win plus a Uganda loss, while Congo is in the same boat as Guinea in Group B.
