So what will be the thing you're watching on 9/10? Apple's new Iphone iteration? Perhaps Obama begging Congress to let the US attack yet another nation? We here at Soccer Insiders recommend going with Option #3.
Egypt v Guinea
You read that right... Egypt plays host to Guinea in the final match of qualifying before the group stages of the WC for Africa. Bob "Skeletor" Bradley will be leading the Pharaohs to what is at present the last remaining undefeated streak in the WCQ 2014 of ANY TEAM. Still can't believe I'm typing that. Bob... Bradley... Egypt... undefeated.
Yeah, the are 5-0 in this 2nd round of qualifying, and even if they manage to blow their streak and lose, they will still progress on points as they are 5pts clear of 2nd place Guinea.
They have 5 more home/away matches, but the top 5 places progress to the World Cup in Brazil, so fully expect to see the Pharaohs return to the Cup and make a mess of things for the favorites in 2014.
