Egypt will play against Iran on 12 October after their scheduled friendly against Brazil was cancelled, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) acting president said on Friday.
"The national team will face Iran on 12 October and Tunisia four days later in the United Arab Emirates," Amer Hussein told Al-Ahram’s Arabic language sports website.
"The contracts for both games will be signed within two days," he added.
Egypt will hold a training camp in the UAE next month as they prepare for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
They will not play any competitive game until next year, when they host Zimbabwe in their third Group G game in March. Egypt are on top of the group with six points from two games after beating Mozambique and Guinea.
