Egypt defender, Ahmed Hegazi has been ruled out of the remainder of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations due to injury.


Hegazi ruptured the tendon of the abductor muscle during Egypts quarter-final victory against North African rivals Morocco and was replaced at half-time by Mahmoud Trezeguet, who netted the winning goal for the Pharaohs in the game.

The reliable defender will now miss his countrys remaining two games in the competition and has now become the seventh Egyptian player to pick up an injury during the AFCON after Mohamed El-Shennawy, Mohamed Abou-Gabal, Mahmoud Hamdy El-Wensh, Akram Tawfik, Ahmed Fetouh and Hamdi Fathi.
