Four days later, Egypt will lock horns with the Super Eagles as they begin preparation for the continental tournament on home soil.
However, they will be without their key talisman who has scored four goals in the qualifying campaign for the two fixtures next month.
His absence is expected to be a boost for Liverpool who are pushing for their first Premier League title since 1990.
West Bromwich Albion defender Ahmed Hegazi is also doubtful for an invitation with Javier Aguirre ready to give fringe players opportunities.
