In their second of two scheduled friendlies in September, Egypt will face Liberia at the Borg El Arab Stadium on Tuesday, with kickoff at 9 pm.
Former Sporting Lisbon boss Rui Vitoria watched on as his Egypt side cruised to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Niger on Friday.
In a one-sided affair at the Borg El Arab Stadium, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah put the Menas to the sword as he scored either side of Mostafa Mohamed’s 54th-minute strike to cap off a brilliant individual performance.
Before that, the Pharaohs suffered a somewhat disappointing 2-0 loss against Ethiopia in their second game in Group D of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on June 9, before losing 4-1 against South Korea in a friendly matchup five days later.
However, Butler’s men have failed to secure their place in the seventh edition of the continental tournament for home-based players as they were beaten 4-2 on aggregate by the Lions of Teranga after suffering a 3-0 defeat in the reverse leg on July 24.
This followed a 2-1 win over Senegal in the second leg of their 2022 Africa Nations Championship qualifying clash on July 30, when Kromah and Andrews scored second-half goals to cancel out Ndour’s 34th-minute opener.

Egypt Team News
After watching his side win easily against Niger, Vitoria is likely to field a 4-3-3 formation with Gaber, Hegazy, Hamdi and Hamdi shielding El-Shenawy in goal. Ashour could also make his first start after replacing Mahmoud on Sunday.
Liberia Team News
Meanwhile, Liberia has called up 21 players for their friendlies against Niger and Egypt. Boison Wynney and Oscar Dorley headline the squad, with Joachim Adukor and Dorley forming a central midfield partnership. Kromah, whose equaliser gave the Lone Star the needed morale boost to mount an impressive comeback against Senegal in July, should retain his role in the XI.
