Egypt will face Liberia at Alexandria's Borg El-Arab stadium on Thursday for their last friendly before kicking off their 2021 Nations Cup qualifying campaign.

The Pharaohs will host Kenya on 14 November before facing Comoros away from home four days later.

Coach Hossam El-Badry will only introduce local-based players against Liberia as his foreign-based footballers will join up with their teammates next week.

El-Badry had called up six foreign-based players last month but the list was reduced to five after the withdrawal of Sporting Braga striker Ahmed 'Kouka' Hassan due to injury.

Egypt were drawn in Group G with Kenya, Comoros and Togo.

The top two in the group will qualify for the 2021 Nations Cup in Cameroon.
