Cúper selects five players from abroad for World Cup qualifier
Cúper called up Mohamed El-Nenny (FC Basel), Mohamed Salah (AS Roma), Ahmed ‘Koka’ Hassan (SC Braga), Mohamed Abdel-Shafy (Ahli Jeddah) and Amr Warda (Panetolikos FC) for the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Chad.
Chad advanced to the second round of 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying in Africa on away goals after drawing Sierra Leone 2-2 on aggregate.
Chad are also Egypt’s opponents in Group G of 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying, and the Pharaohs hammered Les Sao 5-1 last month, inspired by a Bassem Morsi hat-trick.
The Chad FA have announced on Monday the appointment of Rigobert Song as the new national team coach just two weeks before the clash with Egypt.
It is worth noting that FIFA have appointed Nigerian referee Anietie Udoh to officiate the game.
The game will take place at the Stade Idriss Mahamat Ouya in N’Djamena.
