Egypt U-20 national team director spoke about the participation of Le Havre’s attacking midfielder at the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 19-year-old player, who moved to Ligue 2 side Le Havre AC from Arab Contractors, will be joining the national team in their African quest which starts on Sunday.

“We made a final agreement with Le Havre regarding Taher Mohamed and we sent him the flight tickets,” Egypt U-20 national team director Adel Mahfouz told Youth and Sports radio station. “The player will arrive in Zambia at the same time of our arrival.”

However, according to the agreement, Mohamed will only play the first two matches with the Pharaohs in order to avoid exhaustion.
