Egypt's football federation announced the cancellation of a match between the Libyan and Egyptian teams for local players in Cairo last Tuesday.

The friendly match was scheduled for June 5. The Egyptian Football Federation's executive director said the Egyptian Football Federation's apology was due to more than one player's association with exams.

The Libyan team will face Algeria in the first zone qualifiers for the African Nations Cup for local players scheduled for Kenya in 2018. The first leg will be played in Algeria and the second leg will be held in Tunisia.
