Ittihad of Alexandria match against Dakhlya scheduled Sunday has been postponed due to the death of the coastal-club-loaned footballer Youssef Mohiye after a car accident.

"The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) competitions committee, led by Amer Hussein postponed week 15 league match between Ittihad and Dakhlya indefinitely," stated the association on their official website.

The Zamalek youngster, who was on loan to Ittihad, was heading to the coastal city from Cairo accompanied by teammate Mahmoud Khaled "Shika" when the accident happened. Shika survived but lies in hospital in critical condition.

Some Ittihad technical staff members and players have reportedly gone to the hospital with the duo.
