Fathi Mabrouk announces Ahly squad to face Orlando Pirates
The Red Devils will be looking to recover some of their previous, excellent form after losing to arch-rivals Zamalek in the Egyptian Cup final, and will try to upset Orlando by grabbing the three points away from home.
New signing Malick Evouna returns to the squad after missing out the matches against Petrojet and Zamalek in the Egypt Cup due to injury.
Ahly captain Hossam Ghaly and Walid Soliman won’t be travelling to South Africa due to their injuries that also excluded them from the Cup final, while Bassem Ali is suspended for two matches after his yellow card against Espérance Sportive de Tunis.
The squad features the return of striker Ahmed Abdel Zaher who wasn’t in the Cup final squad due to technical reasons.
Al Ahly squad:
Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekramy, Ahmed Adel, Mosaad Awad.
Defenders: Ahmed Fathi, Mohamed Naguib, Saad Samir, Sherif Hazem, Mohamed Hany, Hussein El Sayed, Sabry Rahil.
Midfielders: Momen Zakaria, Abdallah El-Said, Hossam Ashour, Saleh Gomaa, Ramadan Sobhy.
Forwards: Malick Evouna, John Antwi, Emad Meteb, Amr Gamal, Ahmed Abdel Zaher.
