Malatyaspor will play against its guest, Hatayspor, on October 3, in the last meeting before Hafez joined the Egypt national team camp, in preparation for the two matches against Libya in the World Cup qualifiers.
Hafez, 25, participated in 3 matches with Malatyaspor this season.
He will return to the Egyptian national team after an absence of more than two and a half years, since he was a substitute in a friendly match that the Pharaohs lost with a goal against their host Nigeria in March 2019.
Hafez participated in 7 matches with the Egyptian national team and was on the team’s list in the 2017 African Cup, which the Pharaohs lost in the final against Cameroon.
