The manager of Egypt's national team has given the all-clear for its Ahly players to participate in the club's friendly game against Espanyol on 18 May.
Pharaohs coach Bob Bradley had previously refused to let Ahly players with international commitments take part as the national side is due to begin a closed camp on 15 May to prepare for international championships.
The seven-time Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) champions are scheduled to play the Central African Republic in CAN 2013 in June. They will kick off their Brazil 2014 World Cup campaign in the same month, paired with Guinea, Zimbabwe and Mozambique in Group G.
