The Egyptian National team technical staff, under the leadership of American manager Bob Bradley, is hopeful the Egyptian Premier League would be resumed.

The competition is frozen since late June when the crowd threatened to break fans ban and the suspension continued after the latest protests dominated the country for political reasons.

The Pharaohs are waiting for the final decision of the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) in order to set their final preparation plan for the World Cup qualifiers.

The leaders of Group G of the African qualifiers to the 2014 World Cup, who are scheduled to play Guenia 6 September, already secured a place in the World Cup qualifiers play-off.

The African draw for the final round involving the 10 group winners will be made on 16 September in Cairo.  

Bradley planed a long-term closed camp his squad in case the league canceled.
