12 foreign-based players called for Egypt’s game against Swaziland
Egypt beat Niger comprehensively in the second round of AFCON qualifiers as a flurry of first half goals sparked a 6-0 win, with Salah scoring twice being accompanied on the scoresheet by Marwan Mohsen, Ayman Ashraf, Salah Mohsen and Mohamed Elneny.
The list of players was a similar one to that which Aguirre called for the Niger encounter except for Huddersfield Town winger Ramadan Sobhi was not included in the squad as he is yet to recover from injury.
The foreign-based squad:
Mohamed Awad (Al Wehda), Ahmed Hegazi (West Bromwich), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal), Sam Morsy (Wigan Athletic), Ahmed Elmohamady (Aston Villa), Amro Tarek (Orlando City), Aly Ghazal (Vancouver Whitecaps), Mahmoud Trezeguet (Kasimpasa), Amr Warda (PAOK), Ahmed Hassan Koka (Olympiacos), Hussein El-Shahat (Al Ain).
The Pharaohs will face Swaziland in Cairo on October 12 before meeting them again four days later in Manzini. Egypt occupy the second place in Group J with three points from two matches.
