Egypt have added Chile to it’s upcoming schedule of friendly internationals, agreeing to a May 30 date in Santiago.

The Pharaohs will be preparing for the upcoming 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers while Chile gears up for this year’s FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil, where they’ll be paired with tournament holders Spain, 2010 runners-up the Netherlands, and Australia.

The two last played a friendly match early last year in Madrid, with Egypt squandering countless scoring chances before succumbing to a 2-1 defeat.

Egypt’s pending slue of friendlies kicks off with Bosnia (in Austria) on March 5. They’re also scheduled to play Portugal (in London) on May 25 and at Russia on June 1. The schedule would appear to include excessive traveling, but there’s been no word yet on any possible cancellations.

Egypt will hold its first training camp under new manager on February 28.
