Former Ivorian midfielder, Yaya Touré who is also the four-time winner of the CAF African Player of the Year award, will be on stage to make the draw. Alongside him, Ahmed Hassan, record holder of the number of caps with Egypt (184), will proudly represent the host country.

Another star of North African football made the trip: Mustapha Hadji. The current Atlas Lions assistant coach, placed in hat 1, will have the difficult task of not having too much control over this draw for his team. El Hadji Diouf, two-time winner of the CAF African Player of the Year award, will also take part in the celebration, as will CAF Deputy General Secretary, Anthony Baffoe.

Other CAF legends are also in the Egyptian capital such as Joseph Antoine Bell or Rigobert Song. FIFA President Gianni Infantino will also participate in this unique event.

Ghana international striker Caleb Ekuban netted and assisted a goal for Trabzonspor in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday evening at the Generali Arena.

The 25-year-old pulled one back for the Turkish Super Lig side with a fine strike in the 84th minute after Czech Republican Sparta had taken a 2-0 lead.

The 2019 AFCON Ghana forward unleashed a first-time shot from inside the box and beat the goalkeeper into the bottom right corner to halve the deficit for his side.

Former Ghana U17 forward Benjamin Tetteh started upfront for Sparta Prague in the game but he was booked on the 55th minute mark and replaced 10 minutes before the end of the game.
