With the AFCON 2021 finals on the line, here are some of the most exciting spots to join the crowd and cheer for your team later this evening…
In Egypt, a football match immediately necessitates a trip down to your favourite ahwa baladi. Little bit of tea, lots of communal spirit. But with something as huge as the upcoming Egypt vs Cameroon match at AFCON, we might need a bigger venue. Here are some of the most exciting spots to join the crowd and cheer for your team later this evening…
