Egypt announce squad for Ghana clash in World Cup qualifiers

Egypt’s national team manager Héctor Cúper released on Tuesday a 23-man squad for the second round of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Ghana. 

The Argentine coach had previously called up 10 foreign-based players for the highly anticipated match that will be held on Nov. 13 at Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria.

Ittihad Jeddah winger Mahmoud Abdel-Moneim ‘Kahraba’ was originally called up for the upcoming clash, but he was ruled out after suffering an injury in Ittihad’s match against Al Hilal.

Goalkeepers: Essam El-Hadary (Wadi Degla), Sherif Ekramy (Al Ahly), Ahmed El-Shennawy (Zamalek)

Defenders: Ahmed Hegazy (Al Ahly), Ahmed Fathi (Al Ahly), Ahmed Dweidar (Zamalek), Ali Gabr (Zamalek), Hamada Tolba (Al Masry), Mohamed Abdel-Shafy (Ahli Jeddah), Ahmed Elmohamady (Hull City), Omar Gaber (FC Basel)

Midfielders: Abdallah El-Said (Al Ahly), Momen Zakaria (Al Ahly), Ibrahim Salah (Zamalek), Tarek Hamed (Zamalek), Mostafa Fathi (Zamalek), Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal), Mahmoud Hassan Trezeguet (R.E. Mouscron), Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City), Mohamed Salah (AS Roma), Amr Warda (Panetolikos F.C.)

Forwards: Bassem Morsi (Zamalek), Ahmed Hassan Koka (SC Braga)

The Pharaohs, who defeated Congo 2-1 in the first round, will be looking to keep their spot on top of Group E when the Black Stars come to Alexandria.
