Hegazi has become now the seventh Egyptian player to pick up an injury during the AFCON after Mohamed El-Shennawy, Mohamed Abou-Gabal, Mahmoud Hamdy El-Wensh, Akram Tawfik, Ahmed Fetouh, and Hamdi Fathi.

While Fetouh had recovered from his injury and impressed against both Ivory Coast and Morocco, all the remaining names are yet to play a single game since their injuries, with Tawfik tearing his ACL which ruled out of the competition.
