El-Sulaya returns, Hegazy excluded as Al Ahly announce squad for derby
Al Ahly manager Hossam El-Badry has named a 26-man squad for the upcoming game against rivals Zamalek in the 17th round of the Egyptian Premier League.
The 56-year-old has decided to exclude Ahmed Hegazy, Rami Rabia, and Bassem Ali for injury, while John Antwi was excluded for technical reasons.
The squad has witnessed the return of Mossad Awad, Mohamed Hamdy, Akram Tawfik, Ali Maaloul and Amr El-Sulaya, who recovered from the injury he sustained during Al Ahly’s game against Tala’a El-Geish last month.
