Egypt -Germany is on in November

This man -Egypt Football Association's president - has announced that his country will play a friendly against Germany on November 18.

Samir Zaher: "Germany will pay the Egyptian national team €200,000 to host them in a friendly game."

According to Germany general manager Oliver Bierhoff, the match is part of the three-time world champions' build-up for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

However, the former Milan star said the game will only be played if Germany maintain leadership in Group 4 of the World Cup qualifying tournament.

Joachim Loew's team are on top of their group with 16 points, four more than closest rivals Russia.

Germany have also agreed another warm-up game with Chile on November 14.
