Algerian bus is attacked:
The game comes almost 20 years to the day after Egypt beat Algeria, 1-0, to qualify for the 1990 World Cup, its first appearance in 56 years.
Algeria hasn't qualified for the World Cup since 1986, but it holds the edge over the Pharaohs, the two-time defending African champions.
A win, tie or one-goal loss will send the Algerians to the World Cup. A two-goal Egypt win will leave the two teams even in every tiebreaker and force a playoff on Wednesday in Sudan, while a win by more than three goals will send the Pharaohs to the World Cup for only the third time.
Tunisia and Cameroon have the edge over Nigeria and Gabon in their respective groups, but both teams must win on the road -- Tunisia at Mozambique and Cameroon at Morocco -- to be assured of qualifying.
