Pyramids FC Goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy Returns to Cairo Amid Illness Ahead of Sundowns Match.

Pyramids FC’s management in South Africa has made the decision for goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy to depart from Pretoria and head back to Cairo, ruling him out of the team’s upcoming match against Sundowns in the African Champions League.

Hani Said, the sports director, disclosed that Ekramy has been battling a severe cold and a high fever since the team’s arrival in Pretoria, hindering his participation in training sessions over the past few days.

Medical tests conducted by the team’s medical staff to check for malaria yielded negative results. Nevertheless, in light of the challenges Ekramy would face in Sunday’s match and to facilitate his speedy recovery, the delegation has chosen to send him back to Cairo.

This decision takes into account the team’s busy schedule, with multiple domestic and continental obligations throughout the current month.

Pyramids FC is set to visit Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria on Sunday at 3:00 PM. The match marks the third round of the group stage in the prestigious Champions League competition.
