Cúper calls up ten Ahly, eight Zamalek for Eq. Guinea friendly
Egypt national team manager Héctor Cúper has announced the Pharoahs squad for their friendly game against Equatorial Guinea on 26 March.
The 59-year-old has named ten players from Al Ahly and another eight from Zamalek for the upcoming game, which is part of the Egyptian team’s preparation for the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers set to start in June.
This will be the first test for Cúper who took over the Egyptian national team earlier this month after Shawky Gharib stepped down last November after failing to qualify for the 2015 African Cup of Nations.
The friendly game will be played in Morocco due to security concerns as the Egyptian security officials refused to host the game in Egypt.
