Cuper: Kuwait friendly is very important for us and our fans
After two friendly defeats against Portugal and Greece during the March international break, the team will return to preparations as they start a new training camp in May in which they have a scheduled match against Kuwait.
It was revealed before that Cuper was keen on meeting a Gulf team in preparation for World Cup Group A opponents Saudi Arabia.
In an interview with Presentation Sports, Cuper said: “Kuwait friendly is very important and we will be starting with our key players.”
“I want to send an important message that we are always looking to present ourselves in the best way and form when we are wearing the national team’s colors. We will aim to win and perform well,” Cuper added.
For the World Cup group stage, Egypt will kick off their World Cup campaign against Uruguay on June 15, before facing hosts Russia on the 19th and Saudi Arabia on the 25th.
“I was told that the stadium will be full of Egyptian supporters. We prefer such atmospheres as this will add to our high spirits. The match is very important for us and for our fans.
“It is crucial to settle on a form that will help you compete, if I was only interested in winning I would have played with Mohamed Salah when we faced Greece, but it is important to see a new look for the national team during friendlies.”
