Bob Bradley calls up ten Pharaohs Abroad for Ghana play-off
Bob Bradley has called up ten foreign-based players ahead of Egypt’s World Cup qualifier play-off against Ghana on 15 October.
Led by American coach Bob Bradley, the Egyptian national team – who are the only side to collect maximum points from World Cup qualifying – will begin a training camp ahead of the crucial World Cup qualifying play-off against Ghana on 26 September.
The first leg between the Black Stars of Ghana and the Pharaohs of Egypt has been shifted from Sunday 13th October to Tuesday 15th October at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
“Our preparations will start on 26 September in Cairo,” the Pharaohs’ goalkeeping coach Zaki Abdel-Fattah told Ahram Sports.
“We will hold a training camp until 9 October. We have also asked the Egyptian Football Association to arrange two friendly games on 29 September and 2 October,” he added.
