Egypt’s clash away to Senegal in the second leg of their World Cup qualifying playoff was delayed by 24 hours upon the visitors’ request, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) said on Friday.
“The Confederation of African Football (CAF) agreed to the request submitted by the Egyptian Football Association to delay the date of the return match against Senegal by 24 hours,” the EFA said in a brief statement.
The EFA previously voiced reservations over what it called the short interval between the first and second legs.
