manager has announced the Pharoahs squad for their friendly game against Equatorial Guinea on 26 March.

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.
