Ferreira announces Zamalek squad for Aswan
The Whites will welcome back recovered midfield duo Ibrahim Salah (match fitness) and Ibrahim Abdel-Khalek (illness) to the squad.
Last year’s champions will still be missing Mohamed Koffi, Ahmed Hassan Mekky, Ali Gabr and FC Basel loanee Ahmed Hamoudi due to injuries, however.
Club captain Hazem Emam will serve the last game of his suspension following the Egypt Super Cup final, while Ahmed Tawfik is also suspended due to yellow card accumulation.
Here’s the full Zamalek squad:
Goalkeepers: Ahmed El-Shennawy, Mohamed Abou-Gabal
Defenders: Ahmed Dowidar, Hamada Tolba, Islam Gamal, Mohamed Adel Gomaa, Omar Gaber
Midfielders: Mohamed Ibrahim, Tarek Hamed, Ibrahim Salah, Ibrahim Abdel-Khalek, Ayman Hefni, Mahmoud Kahraba, Mostafa Fathi, Marouf Youssef, Mohamed Khalifa.
Forwards: Bassem Morsi, Mohamed Salem
Ferreira’s men will hope to follow-up their 2-0 win over Wadi Degla with another victory.
Kick-off time is still undetermined as it remains to be seen whether the match will be played in the afternoon or in the evening under the floodlights.
