Egypt turns down Colombia test

Egypt National Team vs Ghana

Egypt’s upcoming slate of friendlies will not include Colombia.

Egypt has rejected an offer to play South American powerhouse Colombia in an international friendly, according to manager Shawky Gharib.

In a statement to reporters on Friday, Gharib cited a busy schedule and the risk of player exhaustion if the June 7 match went ahead.

Egypt will take on Chile in a friendly eight days prior in Santiago. Cairo giants Zamalek – whose players comprise a sizeable portion of Egypt’s national team – may also have African Champions League commitments on or around the proposed date.

Egypt has also received a request from China to play friendlies on June 19 and 22.
