Favourites Egypt and defending champions England will battle for gold tomorrow at the World Squash Federation (WSF) Women's World Team Squash Championship in Paris after each winning their respective semi-finals today.
Egypt ended France's superb home run to win 3-0 before the English enjoyed a 2-0 success over Hong Kong on the all-glass court at Palais Des Sports Robert Charpentier.
It was the most established players who led the way for both teams.
World number one Nour El Sherbini took on fifth ranked Camille Serme in the opening rubber of the Egypt and France clash.
The two have enjoyed six wins apiece in previous clashes, but Serme won their last encounter in the final of this year's US Open.
It proved the Egyptian's turn this time, however, as she recovered from 7-3 down in the second game to win 3-0 in 41 minutes.
World number two Raneem El Welily the cruised past 66th ranked Laura Pomportes to guarantee the victory before world number three Nouran Gohar beat Coline Aumard 2-0 in the dead rubber.
"We might have the top three players in the world, but when you're playing the host nation, anything can happen," said winning coach Amr Shabana.
"The scoresheet won't do the first game justice - it could easily have been 3-0 to France.
"The trouble with being top seeds is that everybody expects you to win - it's that or nothing!
"We have to remember that England and Australia have won this title many more times than Egypt - so to really have something to celebrate we need to win it eight or nine more times and get past everybody."
Egypt are two-time former winners of the biennial event in 2008 and 2012 in comparison with six English and seven Australian successes.
World number four Laura Massaro came from a game down to beat 12th-ranked left-hander Annie Au in the first rubber.
Like in the first semi-final, a hard fought opening victory proved key as Sarah-Jane Perry then cruised past Liu Tsz-Ling 3-0.
England will now play in their 12th final in a row as they seek a record-equalling seventh victory.
There will be no third place playoff so France and Hong Kong will each take bronze.
