Egypt prepare to take on next Tuesday in a friendly in Switzerland after the last-gasp loss against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.

Hector Cuper will be hoping to make amends after the team’s loss to Portugal thanks to an injury-time brace from 2017 Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cuper left it until the 62nd minute of the match to make changes to what is more and more looking like Egypt’s starting XI in the World Cup next June. The substitutions included Marwan Mohsen, Amr Warda, Shikabala and Hossam Ashour.

The match against Greece is the perfect opportunity for Cuper to watch some other names and here is how they should line-up:

    Salah not playing the full 90 minutes would be just stupid. Unless Egypt being at least 3 goals up in the dying minutes. A match at the World Cup is 90 minutes plus added time plus eventual extra time. These test games should be simulations of competitive matches. How do we train counter attacks against a team which is desperately throwing all their players at our goal after it has fallen behind? How do we simulate giving it our all to snatch a last gasp winner or equalizer? Easy. Just use players you’d need in these situations.

    I dont think abdalla elsaid should start, cuz its 95 percent sure he will be in mosocw, i think warda or kahraba should be given the chance to start cuz they get really less starts.
