The Zamalek star played a role in Egypt’s second goal in the 2-0 win over Uganda
But he limped off the pitch just seven minutes from time.
Shikabala appeared to have twisted his ankle after landing awkwardly.
But head coach Bob Bradley will be delighted to have midfielder Hosni Abd-Rabou back after a lengthy lay-off with a knee injury.
He played in Monday’s friendly win over the Cranes.
