Egypt’s national football team faces Nigeria in friendly game today، Tuesday in preparations for 2019 AFCON championship.
The two squads meet on the pitch of Stephen Keshi Stadium Asaba، Nigeria، at 7:00 pm (Cairo local time).
The Pharaohs arrived in Nigeria on Sunday to prepare for the game.
The Pharaohs، led by Javier Aguirre، held a training session Monday evening in Nigeria.
Egypt drew to Niger 1-1 in the qualifications of 2019 African Cup on Nations on Saturday.
Aguirre decided not to include Liverpool star، Mohamed Salah، in the team’s camp due to the pressure of matches with the English team especially that it competes for the Premiere League and the Champions League at the same time.
It is worthy to mention that، Egypt has crushed Niger in the first leg with 6-0 win.
