CAIRO: Egypt will have to do without Ahmed Fathi when they face Rwanda in the World Cup qualifiers next month after he aggravated a knee injury on Sunday.

The versatile midfielder initially picked up a knee ligament injury during Egypt s stunning 1-0 victory over world champions Italy in the Confederations Cup on Thursday.

He was deemed fit to play against the US but his participation in the Pharaohs embarrassing 3-0 defeat proved costly.

He limped off the pitch few minutes after the restart, making way for defender Ahmed Saied Ouka .

I will need around six weeks to recover, the Ahly man told Al-Hayat TV early on Monday.

Left-back Sayed Moawad is also doubtful for the Rwanda tie after sustaining an injury against the US.

African champions Egypt host Rwanda on July 5 as they seek to claim their first win in the World Cup qualifiers final phase.
