Egypt Turn Down Uruguay Friendly

Egypt Turn Down Uruguay Friendly

The Egyptian Football Association have rejected an offer to play a friendly match against Uruguay as both sides didn’t reach an agreement regarding the financial aspects and date of the match.

Egypt will face Nigeria, Tanzania and Chad in their 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers which kicks off in June 2015.

Completesportsnigeria.com gathered from the Egypt FA official website and leading north African football websites that the national team received offers to play friendly matches against Uruguay, Syria and Uzbekistan.

The EFA refused the offer as the match was set to be played in September, which is the same month the national team will be playing against Chad on the 4th, 5th or 6th for the second round of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

The British company which is organizing the match asked the Pharaohs to decrease their requested payment for the match as they changed the date to October.
