The Pharaohs' director Ihab Lehita told a TV programme this past week that they will also play three international friendlies.

"During this preparation camp the Pharaohs will play two or three friendly games," said Lehita.

The director added that their opponents in these friendlies are not defined yet, but they will play European champions Portugal and Greece on March 23 and 27 in Switzerland.

Under the guidance of coach Hector Cuper, the North Africans have ended a 28-year World Cup drought.

They are paired in Group A with Saudi Arabia, hosts Russia and South American powerhouse Uruguay.
