The International Football Association (FIFA) and the World Cup Organizing Committee alerted Al-Ahly about the restrictions related to the Corona virus, days before the start of the tournament on February 3.
Al-Ahly imposed strict restrictions to preserve the safety of its members, after FIFA notified it that any member of the team would be infected with the Corona virus, or one of its mutations, shortly before the start of the tournament, and would not be able to participate.
If an individual is infected during the tournament, he will be subject to a 10-day quarantine, and FIFA will not exclude anyone from this.
Therefore, Al-Ahly was quick to conduct periodic smears for the first team members to detect early any infection with the Corona virus.
He stressed to his elements the need to follow precautionary measures such as wearing masks, social distancing, using detergents, and avoiding being in crowded places.
Coach Pitso Mosimane decided to rely on young players in the League Cup, accordingly in order to preserve its basic elements before the tournament.
Al-Ahly will participate in the Club World Cup for the eighth time, and will face Monterrey, the Mexican champion of North America, on February 5.
And if he reaches the semi-finals, he will play against the Brazilian champion Palmeiras, the South American champion.
