Egypt wants out of Qatar game

The assistant coach of the Egyptian National team Diaa El Sayed has revealed that the technical staff don’t want to play friendly match against Qatar on March 7.

The Egyptian Football Association under leadership of Gamal Allam had asked Bob Bradley to play friendly match with Qatar duo to the close relationship the two FA’s.

”We don’t need this match, it will not be good for us , and Bob Bradley has approached Allam about this” Diaa said to supersport.com.

”We asked to play a friendly match against a second level team from Africa and we picked Kenya or Swaziland and that was supposed to be on March 22. This is what we need before our match against Zimbabwe. Those game fall on a FIFA day so we can call all our players but that will not be the case for the Qatar match.” he added.
