The match has been pencilled for the weekend of March 25-27 in South Africa, but if the Pharaohs have it their way the match could be postponed to June. Filgoal.com quotes Egypt's assistant national coach Hamada Sedki saying “The team must have suffered a dip in form after the league was halted so we want to put off the game with South Africa… We will send a letter to CAF on Wednesday. We will ask them to play the game in June should they accept our request,” Sedki said, oblivious to the fact that both countries are set to play each other in Egypt early in June, which means if the March fixture is postponed it could be shifted to an even later date. Egypt's friendly match against the United States in Cairo on February 9 was cancelled and the Egyptian League has been on a break in the wake of the political unrest in the North African country, which saw their president Hosni Mubarak being forced from power. However, the majority of the Egyptian clubs have reportedly agreed to resume with the fixtures soon. The clubs, though, have put forward some conditions to the Egyptian FA such as “The possibility of exceptionally annulling relegation this season” and “The possibility of resuming league matches behind closed doors”. South Africa are top of Group G after two matches, while Egypt is languishing at the bottom of the log after losing to Niger away and drawing their home match against Sierra Leone. Safa's director of communications Morio Sanyane couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
