The Egyptian national team's technical staff visited the Zamalek training ground on Wednesday to meet the former national manager Hassan Shehata.

The visit came amid preparations for the 2013 African Cup of Nations.

“We met with the Zamalek coach to help co-ordinate the players' training programmes during the next crucial period,” goalkeeping coach Zaki Abdel-Fattah told Ahram Online.

The technical staff visited Ahly on Tuesday to discuss the same matter and to express solidarity for the Port Said victims.

All football activities in the country have been suspended since 1 February when scores died and hundreds were injured following crowd violence at a match between Masry and Ahly in Port Said.

Before they were defeated 2-1 by the Under-23 team in a friendly on Tuesday, the Pharaohs wrapped up their training camp in Qatar after playing three friendly games, defeating Kenya 5-0 and Niger 1-0 before being held to a goalless draw by the Democratic Republic of Congo.

They will play two games in upcoming 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Mozambique and Guinea on 1 and 8 June respectively. They will then face the Central African Republic on 30 June in 2013 CAN qualifiers.
