Entag El-Harby’s goalkeeper has withdrawn from the Egypt squad to face Niger and in the March internationals.

Amer was called up by Javier Aguire for the national team camp ahead of the Pharaohs last AFCON qualifier against Niger as well as Nigeria’s friendly.

A training session, that took place at Borg El-Arab stadium with the participation of 18 players, has witnessed the injury of the 32-year-old goalkeeper as he suffered a knock.


Amer was unable to continue the training session as he left the pitch to receive treatment and on Tuesday it has been confirmed that he will not be able to travel with the rest of the squad.

The inform goalkeeper was in line to make his international debut after his exceptional performances for Entag El-Harby this season, which saw him start every game for the military club, in which he kept six clean sheets.

He becomes the second goalkeeper to miss the March internationals through injury after Al Wehda’s Mohamed Awad, who sustained a calf injury while playing for his club last month.

Despite the two absences, the Pharaohs are not expected to face any problems in the goalkeeping area with Zamalek’s Mahmoud Gennesh, Ahmed El-Shennawy of Pyramids, and Smouha’s Mahmoud Abou-Gabal also in the group.
