The Egyptian national team has arrived in Asaba, Delta ahead of their international friendly match against Nigeria on Tuesday.

The Pharaohs finished their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers campaign, with a 1-1 away draw against Niger.

Head coach of the side, Javier Aguirre, dropped the country’s biggest star Mohamed Salah from the game.

Salah will also be missing in action against the Super Eagles at the Stephen Keshi Stadium.

Both countries will use the game to prepare for the 2019 AFCON finals, which will be hosted by Egypt in June.

The last time Egypt faced Nigeria away from home was in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
