Egypt Get Burundi, Malawi Friendlies Ahead Nigeria Clash

Nigeria’s 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifying foes, Egypt have agreed to play friendly matches against Burundi and Malawi before it kicks off 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying games this summer.

“Egypt’s technical staff have chosen to play two friendly matches against Burundi and Malawi on May 12 and June 8 respectively,” the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) said on its official website.


The Pharaohs’ first Group G qualifier will be at home against Tanzania on June 14.

“Argentine Coach Hector Cuper has rejected offers to play against Sierra Leone, Djibouti, Uzbekistan, Australia, and Syria, choosing to face Burundi and Malawi during the available dates,” the statement added.

The EFA left open the possibility of playing the teams mentioned at in the future, perhaps in July or August.

Egypt will hold two training camps over the summer, including a June 18-21 session and another between July 7 and 14.

Burundi replace Djibouti as Egypt’s choice of exhibition match opponent, as previously announced by the EFA.

Egypt has a record seven AFCON titles but haven’t qualified for the tournament since 2010, no thanks in part to political turmoil and domestic football stoppages
