Egypt will face Ethiopia in a friendly game on 30 August as part of their preparations for the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers, Egyptian Football Association (EFA) chairman Gamal Allam said on Friday.

The match will be played in the Upper Egyptian city of Aswan. It will be the 15th meeting between both sides.

Egypt last met Ethiopia in a friendly game in 2002, crushing them 4-0 in Cairo.

The Pharaohs, who begin their Nations Cup qualifying campaign next month, will play in Group G along with Tunisia, Senegal and a yet to be determined side.

Egypt, record holders of the Nations Cup with seven titles, have not qualified for the biennial tournament since winning the 2010 title in Angola.
