Egypt’s Pyramids faced Tunisia’s Sfaxien in the fourth round of the African Confederation Cup, with the match ending in a 1–1 draw.
This meeting brought good and bad news for Pyramids, with this tie the team decided to go from their group to the quarterfinals of the African Confederation, two days from the end of the groups.
The bad news is that Ramadan Sobhi, the star of the team, was injured and left the match early, and that was in the 39th minute of the first half.
In the following lines, we learn about Ramadan Sobhi’s injury and the length of his absence.
What is Ramadan Sobhi’s injury?
After the match between Pyramids and CS Sfaxien, Dr. Mostafa Al-Muniri, head of the Sky Club medical staff, spoke about Ramadan Sobhi’s injury.
Al-Muniri stated that the injury is at the level of the knee, and a final decision can only be made with an X-ray at the site of the injury.
Pyramids’ doctor confirmed that the player will undergo tests and X-rays after returning from Tunisia, to fully determine the situation.
What is the duration of Ramadan Sobhi’s absence?
The length of Ramadan Sobhi’s absence cannot be known until the nature of the injury is revealed.
Many fans fear Ramadan Sobhi’s injury is a cruciate ligament injury, but his departure from the stadium largely rules out this possibility.
Ramadan left the field on foot, which does not happen often in cases of cruciate ligament injury, in most cases the player is unable to walk.
Is Ramadan Sobhi absent from the game between Egypt and Senegal?
Ramadan Sobhi could miss the Egypt-Senegal match, especially since his knee injury.
Knee injuries typically require a treatment period of more than a month, making it difficult to catch up with the player.
We are 11 days away from the Egypt-Senegal match, the departure date is March 25, 2022 and coach Carlos Queiroz, coach of the Pharaohs, will announce the final list in a few days.
