Egypt has removed striker Amr Warda from their Africa Cup of Nations team after being accused of sexual harassment by a number of women.

The Egyptian-British model Merhan Keller claimed that Warda, 25, had sent her inappropriate and aggressive messages.

Keller then followed her claims by sharing testimonies with a number of other women who had contacted her, saying that they too received unwanted messages from the football player.

Call to the Egyptian Football Association to take action grew and President Hany Abo Rida confirmed Wednesday that Warda had been removed from the squadron for their home tournament.

Egypt, which has Liverpool star Mohamed Salah in their team, plays the rest of the tournament with just 22 players.

FA Chairman Rida said the decision was made after consulting the team's technical and administrative staff and that it was consistent with the discipline, dedication and focus of the team.

Warda, who borrowed from PAOK for the Greek club Atromitos, had previously been accused of harassing a photo model on Instagram and an indictment against him had been filed with the Egyptian Attorney General.

The decision to exclude the 25-year-old attacker who played for the World Championship in Russia last year came hours before they met the Democratic Republic of Congo in Cairo in their second African Cup of Nations game.

Warda had come as a substitute in last Friday's opening game, a 1-0 win over Zimbabwe.
