Al Ahly goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy may be out for Egypt's 2017 Africa Cup of Nations opener against Mali on Tuesday due to injury.
"Ekramy has sustained a minor injury during trainings. Scans showed that he has a strain in his thigh. He will skip Sunday's trainings but will join Monday," head of the Egyptian delegation in Gabon Hazem El-Hawary told Ahram Sports on Sunday.
Ekramy used to be Egypt's first-choice goalie before some shaky displays saw him fall down the pecking order under Argentinean coach Hector Cuper.
The 33-year-old has made 12 international appearances since earning his first call-up in 2013, playing in five World Cup qualifiers and seven friendly games.
Ekramy has given impressive performances with Ahly club recently but is likely to be Egypt's third-choice keeper at the Nations Cup, with veteran Essam El-Hadary and Zamalek's Ahmed El-Shennawi ahead of him.
