El-Badry names 23-man Al Ahly squad for Smouha encounter
Al Ahly manager Hossam El-Badry has called up 23 players for the team’s semi-final clash with Smouha in Egypt Cup.
Al Ahly are looking to achieve the domestic double and add this season’s Egypt Cup in their trophy cabinet, after being crowned as the Egyptian Premier League champions in June without conceding a single defeat.
The Red Devils’ defender Saad Samir will miss out Wednesday’s game due to injury, while Mido Gaber and Karim Nedved have been left out by a technical decision.
Veteran right-back Ahmed Fathi was also left out of the squad for the upcoming game due to accumulation of yellow cards.
Full Al Ahly squad:
Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekramy, Ahmed Adel, Mohamed El-Shennawy
Defenders: Bassem Ali, Mohamed Hany, Sabry Rahil, Hussein El-Sayed, Ali Maaloul, Rami Rabia, Mohamed Naguib
Midfielders: Hossam Ghaly, Hossam Ashour, Ahmed Hamoudi, Akram Tawfik, Amr Barakat, Saleh Gomaa, Abdallah El-Said, Momen Zakaria, Walid Soliman.
Strikers: Junior Ajayi, Amr Gamal, Emad Meteb.
Al Ahly have most recently participated in the recent Arab Club Championship which was hosted by Egypt but were eliminated by Jordan’s Al Faisaly at the semifinal. They are also set to take on Esperance Sportive de Tunis in the quarter-final of CAF Champions League in September.
