Match K.O. at 20:00 Cairo local time | 14:00 ET Canada – USA
Venue: Stadion Letzigrund (Zürich)
Referee: Fedayi San (Switzerland)
Hector Cuper is expected to test new players in his squad when the Pharaohs face Greece on Tuesday in the second friendly match of the current training camp in Zurich amid preparations for the World Cup.
The Egyptians still have bad memories from their last encounter against Greece, having lost 6-1 in a humilating match back in 1990. Cuper’s men are not driven by revenge, but instead are concerned with improving their performance ahead of the World Cup.
On Friday, Egypt was on the verge of a famous friendly win against Portugal, thanks to a wonderful goal from Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah, but Real Madrid’s star Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in stoppage time to give his side a 2-1 comeback victory.
Stoke City’s Ramadan Sobhi, Al-Ain’s Huessin El-Shahat, Ittihad Jeddah’s Mahmoud Kahraba and Los Angeles FC’s Omar Gaber are all expected to get their chance against Greece after missing the Portugal test.
Egypt reached the World Cup finals, which will kick off in Russia in June, after ending a 28-year old drought.
The Pharaohs have been placed in Group A along with hosts Russia, Uruguay and Saudi Arabia.
