UAE name squad for friendly against Egypt
The United Arab of Emirates have announced the squad to face Egypt in the international friendly scheduled to take place on November 20.
Egypt manager Javier Aguirre had announced his squad of local-based players for the Pharaohs’ encounter against Tunisia in the 2019 AFCON qualifiers and the friendly against UAE.
The Pharaohs have already secured their place in the AFCON tournament in Cameroon following back-to-back victories against eSwatini and a 6-0 victory over Niger.
Meanwhile, the Emirati side are entering the final phase of their preparations for the AFC Asian Cup which will take place in January 2019. UAE coach Alberto Zaccheroni will, however, miss the services of the Whites’ star Omar Abdulrahman who sustained an ACL injury recently.
