Egypt – Senegal friendly called off
The Egyptian Football Association has decided to cancel the friendly between Egypt and Senegal, which was scheduled to be played on Thursday in the United Arab Emirates.
The cancellation comes after discovering that Senegal’s first team will play against Nigeria just hours after the scheduled Egypt game, and that the U-23 team will be the one facing the Egyptian national team.
“We had a contract with the company which arranged the match stipulating that Egypt will play against Senegal’s first team, not the Olympic one; this is unacceptable,” EFA vice president Hassan Fareed told FilGoal.com.
It is worth noting that Egypt will play against Zambia on Sunday, the 11th of October.
