EXCLUSIVE: Luxembourg request Egypt friendly
Luxembourg and Egypt have been in talks to play a friendly international, a source familiar with the discussions has told KingFut.
Luxembourg reached out to Egypt, offering to host the match on May 22. Talks reached an “advanced stage” at one point, according to the source, but have since quieted. The match has yet to officially be turned down, however.
Egypt’s FA recently mentioned Congo, Libya, and Morocco as possible candidates for a May friendly, though FIFA’s official match calendar shows Malawi facing the Pharaohs on May 30.
Egypt will take on Tanzania in its final 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on June 4.
Although the Pharaohs are already on the verge of securing qualification, the Tanzania clash – in addition to any May friendlies – would impact their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying group draw.
