Ismaily name squad for Le Messager CAF Champions League clash
Ismaily have announced their squad that will face Burundian side Le Messager in the return-leg of the round of 64 of the CAF Champions League.
The Ismailia-based side have managed to win 1-0 away from home, thanks to Tarek Taha’s powerful left-foot free-kick, which secured a narrow win in Burundi.
They will host Le Messager at home on Wednesday at 17:00 PM and will need to win or draw by any result in order to qualify for the next round.
If they managed to do so, they will face 2008 CAF Champions League runners-up Coton Sport, after they knocked out ASF Bobo Dioulasso of Burkina Faso on penalties.
The squad for the Wednesday’s clash have seen the return of Hosny Abd Rabo and Mahmoud Metwally, who missed their away-leg due to injury.
Goalkeepers: Mohamed Magdy, Mohamed Fawzi.
Defenders: Ahmed Ayman, Baher Elmohamady, Mahmoud Metwally, Richard Buffor, Mohamed Magdy, Tarek Taha.
Midfielders: Hosny Abd-Rabo, Emad Hamdi, Nader Ramadan, Omar El-Wahsh, Mohamed Sadek, Abdelrahman Magdy, Karim Bambo, Lassad Jaziri.
Forwards: Christopher Mendouga, Shokry Naguib.
