Mohamed Gharaba, director of the Egyptian national team, announced that the Football Association will submit an official protest to the African Union (CAF) today, Saturday, because of the date of the national team’s match with its counterpart, Guinea.
The Egyptian national team will visit its Guinean counterpart next June in the fifth round of the African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The director of the Egyptian national team said: “We addressed CAF twice after the last March camp to find out the date and place of the Guinea match, but there was no response, and we sent a letter to the Guinea national team. We were surprised by the response yesterday that the match is on the 14th and they have a friendly match on the 17th with Brazil.”
Gharaba added: “I congratulate Al-Ahly on winning Ali Al-Taraji, as he is the representative of Egypt in Africa and has all the support. The Champions League final is on June 11 or 12. Whether the final party is Wydad or Sundowns, the players will suffer from stress due to traveling to Morocco or South Africa.”
And the director of the Egyptian national team concluded his statements by saying: “We have been studying the matter for a while, and we have offers for friendly matches that we have not decided on a date due to the lack of clarity of vision about the Guinea match, and today we will present an official protest to CAF about the date of the Guinea match, and within two or three days the response will arrive.”
Yallakora had been told by a high-ranking source that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) had received a letter from its Egyptian counterpart, in which the latter asked to change the date of the Guinea-Conakry-Egypt match in the fifth round of the African Cup of Nations qualifiers in Côte d’Ivoire.

The source said, in statements by Laila Koura, today, Friday, that the Guinean Football Federation has set June 14 as the date for its match with Egypt in a stadium that will be determined later, in light of the absence of the Guinean national team matches in the capital, Conakry.
