Osama El-Shaer, Egypt’s team doctor, passed away on Thursday evening, after a short battle with illness.

Osama El-Shaer was reportedly diagnosed with a brain tumor and subsequently underwent surgery, which was performed by a French doctor.

The last time El-Shaer travelled with the national team was during the team’s camp in the UAE.

Although he couldn’t attend Egypt’s matches against Chad in the 2018 World cup qualifiers, El-Shaer visited the team’s training camp before the clashes.

Egypt’s FA had appointed Mohamed Abou El-Ela as a temporary doctor for the national team during El-Shaer’s sickness absence.

El-Shaer previously worked with the Egyptian Olympic team before he was promoted on May to the first team.
