Pharoahs touch down for show down with Black Stars

The Pharoahs of Egypt have touched down at the Kumasi Airport Saturday ahead of the crucial World Cup play-offs against the Black Stars of Ghana on Tuesday.

The Egyptians arrived at exactly 8:12am aboard a chartered aircraft.

The team, led by coach Bob Bradley appear poised to cause an upset away from home.

Egypt must eliminate 2010 quarterfinalist Ghana to make it to the World Cup for the first time in over 20 years after the countries were drawn to face each other in Africa's decisive playoffs.

The Egyptians are yet to drop points in the qualification campaign, having beaten Mozambique, Guinea and Zimbabwe in the group encounters.

The play-off against Ghana will be their toughest test yet in the qualification campaign for Brazil.
