Totti in Pyramids

Roma squad enjoyed a quick tour to the Pyramids on Wednesday evening, hours before their friendly encounter with Ahli at Cairo Stadium.

The Giallorossi team made a brief visit to Egypt's most popular tourist site, with a host of non-Egyptian supporters gathering for autographs.

Meanwhile, Francesco Totti's involvement in the game is uncertain as the Roma icon is still en route to recover from a serious knee injury.

Following his departure with the squad to Cairo, there was speculation that the 32-year-old could feature against the Egyptian champions.

However, the elegant playmaker is cautious over his comeback timing as he sets sights on the Italian Super Cup clash with Inter Milan later this month.

"The objective is to get back for the Super Cup but I’m not losing sleep over playing on August 24," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"If I am ready that will be good, but otherwise I will delay the talk of a return.

"I won’t be going to London with the team. I will stay at Trigoria to train because I must keep working well if I am to return soon."

Totti has been absent since April, following an anterior cruciate ligament injury in a Serie A game with Livorno.
