Egyptian national team have left on a nine-hour flight to Comoros for Monday's scheduled game in the second match in Group G in the qualifiers of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, which will be held in Cameroon.

The Pharaohs started their qualification campaign with a 1-1 draw against Kenya on Thursday at Borg El-Arab stadium in Alexandria in Group G, which includes Comoros and Togo.

Comoros tops Group G with three points after beating Togo 1-0. Egypt and Kenya sit in second place with one point each.

The national team held a morning training session led by coach Hossam El-Badry before leaving to Comoros with players who participated in Kenya's game last night taking part in rehabilitation sessions.

Egypt's striker Ahmed Gomaa was ruled out from the trip due to a knee injury he sustained during the morning trainings.
