Player to watch: Mohamed Konate

Mohamed Konate put up some solid performances for Akhmat Grozny in the Russian Premier League. He has seven direct goal involvements (6 goals, 1 assist) in his last seven matches across all competitions.

Interestingly, the 26-year-old also has some decent numbers for Burkina Faso, as he scored in three of his last five caps. Considering Egypt saw their defence breached 11 times in their last six games, Konate will fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet.
