Following a strong performance against Algeria in the group decider last Thursday, Beaumelle might choose a similar starting team against the Pharaohs, with Sebastien Haller and Pepe leading the charge.
While the Arsenal striker concluded the group stages with two goals and one assist, Haller has two goals to his name, and the duo will be hoping to repeat their success for the Elephants.

Egypt will have to make due without Akram Tawfik and Ahmed Fatouh, who were both injured in their group’s opening match against Nigeria on January 11.
Last time out, Abdelmoneim scored the game-winning goal in the 35th minute against Sudan, and the 23-year-old should keep his place in the starting XI.
Salah, Mustafa Mohamed, and Omar Marmoush, the attacking trio who have started each of the Pharaohs’ first three games, are expected to start again.
Ivory Coast XI:
Sangare; Aurier, Kossounou, Deli, Konan; Kessie, Seri, Sangare; Zaha, Haller, Pepe
El-Shennawy; Kamal, Hegazi, Hamdi, Ashraf; Fathi, El-Sulya, Elneny; Mohamed, Marmoush, Salah
