The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) announced that the team will take on UAE’s national team in a friendly match. The game is scheduled for November 20th, yet there was news earlier this week that the game will be held on November 9th before Egypt’s last match in the World Cup qualifiers against Ghana.
The high-profile game will be considered a preparatory step for the UAE’s national team for the 2019 Asian Cup. The venue hasn’t been officially confirmed yet.
Egypt’s team will be playing against Tunisia on November 16th in the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
