Aubameyang to face Salah in World Cup qualifying as Egypt and Gabon drawn together

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mohamed Salah will face off in the second round of qualifying for World Cup 2022, with Gabon and Egypt drawn in the same group.

Salah's Egypt and Aubameyang's Gabon will join Libya and Angola in Group F in the second phase of African qualifying for the finals in Qatar.

Gabon will be looking to qualify for their first World Cup, though they have reached the Africa Cup of Nations seven times – most recently in 2017.

Should Gabon reach a debut World Cup Aubameyang will likely be a key reason, with the striker having netted 20 goals for his country in 51 appearances.
