Last Night’s Talk Shows: Still licking our AFCON wounds + bilateral talks with Djibouti

The talking heads are not quite over AFCON yet: Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 38:12), El Hekaya (watch, runtime: 3:22), and Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 51:03) all marked the Pharaohs’ return from Cameroon by revisiting the team’s performance with analysts, former players and even national team goalkeeper Mohamed Abo Gabal, who was El Hekaya’s guest for the evening. Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime: 3:31) also gave AFCON some airtime.

Also getting coverage: Djiboutian President Ismail Guelleh’s visit for talks with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi. Former assistant foreign minister Mohamed Hegazy looked at the strategic importance of the visit on a phone call with Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 10:06), while Khaled Okasha, general manager of thinktank Egyptian Center for Strategic Studies, weighed in on a call with Al Hayah Al Youm’s Lobna Assal (watch, runtime: 3:00; 2:03). We have more on the story in our Diplomacy section, below.
