The Egyptian national football team arrived in Gabon to play the second match in the African qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
And the Egyptian team’s delegation left via a private plane at the request of the team’s coach, Hossam El-Badry, for fear of injury or stress to the players.
It is scheduled that the Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah, will join the team’s mission in the coming hours, coming from England, after he missed the first round match against the Angolan team.
Salah was absent from the Angola match after Liverpool refused to travel to the Egyptian international due to Egypt being placed on the red list due to the Corona virus (Covid 19).
The Gabon and Egypt match will be held on Sunday evening, as the meeting will be at nine o’clock Cairo time.
It is worth noting that the Egyptian team opened its campaign by defeating Angola with a goal without a response, while the Gabonese team lost to its Libyan rival, with a goal against two goals.
