Versatile defender Sherif Abdel-Fadil has been ruled out of Ahly's FIFA Club World Cup opener against Guangzhou Evergrande of China after picking up a calf injury, the club said on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old failed to complete Ahly's training session on Wednesday and the team doctor said he should rest for three days.

Abdel-Fadil's injury will give coach Mohamed Youssef a defensive selection headache after veteran left-back Sayed Moawad was ruled out of the tournament with a hamstring injury.

Ahly face Guangzhou Evergrande in Agadir on Saturday and the winner will set up a mouthwatering clash against European champions Bayern Munich on Tuesday.
