Egypt will prepare their upcoming clashes against Nigeria in the Nations Cup qualifiers with three friendly games, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) said on their official website on Monday.

The Pharaohs will face Burkina Faso twice on 24 and 28 January in Cairo, while the third game is set to be played in February against Romania or Uzbekistan as the specific opponents are not yet determined.

Egypt will face Nigeria twice on 23 and 27 March respectively in the Nations Cup qualifiers.

The seven-time African champions, who missed the last three editions of the Nations Cup, are at the top of their group with six points with two ahead of the second placed Nigeria.
