Shikabala included in Sporting squad for Belenenses match
This is Shikabala’s second inclusion in Sporting’s main team, the first one having come last month, for a match against Marítimo. However, the Pharaoh did not make the bench and was forced to watch from the stands.
Shikabala has taken part in five Sporting B matches, having started four of those games. In his last B team game, he provided an assist for one of the goals and made a good match in a 3-3 draw against Farense.
His inclusion in the squad comes as a surprise after his agent said that he expects the Egyptian to feature next season and not the current one.
The match will be played this Saturday evening, at the Estádio do Restelo, in Lisbon.
Goalkeepers: Rui Patrício and Marcelo Boeck;

Midfielders: William Carvalho, Adrien Silva, Vítor, Gerson Magrão, André Martins and Carlos Mané, Capel, Carrillo, Heldon, Wilson Eduardo;
