Ethiopia on Monday asked if the match could be played on August 26 or 28 instead of the original August 30 date, citing conflicts with the schedule of its national team.

If the Egyptian FA does not agree to the requested change, the Pharaohs may have to go without any friendly matches ahead of their opening 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Senegal and Tunisia early next month.

Egypt begins a 10-day training camp in the southern Egyptian city of Aswan on August 25.

Egypt has not qualified for the tournament since winning it a record third time in a row in 2010.
