South African Victor Gomez was supposed to lead the match, but his infection with Corona prompted enough to award the match to his compatriot Thandu Ndzandzika.
Ndzandzika is assisting Zakieli Siwela, Athenkosi Ndungeni and Tom Abongeli as fourth referee.
Ndzandzika is running his first international match.
The Egyptian national team is preparing to meet Kenya and Comoros on Thursday and Monday in the 2021 African Nations Cup qualifiers.
Egypt tops Group G with 8 points, which is the same as the Comoros Islands, which are ranked second, while Kenya is ranked third with 3 points.
A draw against Kenya in any result is sufficient for Egypt to officially qualify for the African Nations Cup in Cameroon.
