Cúper announces squad for Chad AFCON qualifier
Egypt manager Héctor Cúper has announced on Saturday his 27-man squad for the upcoming 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Chad.
UPDATE: Tarek Hamed was called up to the squad on 24th of August and has been added to the players list.
The Argentine coach’s team is predictably dominated by players from newly-crowned Egyptian Premier League champions Zamalek and fellow Cairo giants Al Ahly. However, the Whites’ skillful duo Ayman Hefny and Mostafa Fathy were both left out due to injuries.
The squad also included seven players plying their trade overseas.
The list has witnessed many surprises with the exclusion of Al Ahly’s Ahmed Fathi and the inclusion of the injured duo Amr Gamal and Saleh Gomaa. Zamalek’s Hamada Tolba was also included in the squad.
Egypt and Chad will play their second match in Group G in N’Djamena on Sunday, September 6.
The Pharaohs top the group over Nigeria on goal difference after beating Tanzania in their first qualifier.

Defenders: Saad Samir, Hussein El-Sayed (Al Ahly), Ali Gabr, Hazem Emam, Hamada Tolba (Zamalek), Rami Rabia (Sporting CP; Portugal), Ahmed Hegazy (ACF Fiorentina; Italy), Mohamed Abdel-Shafy (Ahli Jeddah; Saudi Arabia)
