On Sunday the 9th of December, (FPF) Portuguese Football Federation offered the (EFA) Egyptian Football Federation a friendly match to prepare for the next World Cup in 2018. Hector Cuper agreed to the offer and the match is set to be played during the training camp next March.
Aside from Portugal; Sweden, Mexico, and Bulgaria respectively offered to play with the Egyptian National Team.
Cuper still didn’t make up his mind concerning the offers we received, however, it’s expected that he’s going agree on some of these matches as we’re in need to practice with big teams to be in the spirit of the World Cup.
It’s worth mentioning that our last match with a European team was on the 14th of November, 2012 with Georgia that ended with a defeat of 2 goals.
But that was from 5 years ago, things have changed, we hope for better results now.
Tell us what our National team will do in these matches in the comments below!
