EFA: Mohamed Salah will be left out of Egypt squad for March internationals
EFA vice president Ahmed Shobier has revealed that Mohamed Salah will not be called up for the Pharaohs squad for the March internationals.
“Mohamed Salah will not play the Niger game in the AFCON qualifiers or the Nigeria friendly,” the EFA vice president said.
“Ahmed Hegazi will probably also be left out of the squad,” he added.
The last time Egypt faced Nigeria away from home was in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier. The Pharaohs managed to secure a last-gasp draw following a Mohamed Salah strike to go on and beat Nigeria 1-0 in Alexandria and qualify to the AFCON for the first time since 2010.
Despite the last loss against the Pharaohs, Nigeria hold a superior record in their previous meetings with the Egyptians having won seven, drawn five and lost five.
