Egypt will play friendlies against Ghana and Ivory Coast on 10 and 14 January in Abu Dhabi.
“The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has approved the friendlies offer,” EFA vice-president Hassan Farid was quoted as saying on the association’s official website.
The winners of seven African Cup of Nations trophies will not play a competitive game until March when they host Zimbabwe in a qualifier for the 2014 World Cup.
