Cuper decides on Egypt’s line up to face Nigeria

Posted on January 30, 2016


coach Hector Cuper revealed that he had already set the Egypt line up to play against Nigeria next March after this camp in Aswan.

Egypt played two friendlies in the Aswan camp this week, losing the first game against Jordan 1-0 before beating Libya 2-0 in the second game for their preparations for the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Nigeria.

The Egyptian Football Association’s (EFA) official website quoted Cuper’s comments after the Libya match as he described the camp as very beneficial.

“We gained a lot from the camp. We played two games and managed to know everything about the old and new players,” Cuper said.

“32 players have been called up to the camp. Some players proved to deserve the call up while others were below the needed level. We may call up more players  I have already decided on the line up which will face Nigeria,” Cuper added.

Egypt are currently leading Group G after winning their two games against Tanzania and Chad. The Pharaohs are set to face Nigeria two times next March as they hope to make their first African Cup of Nations appearance since 2010.
