head coach Sebastien Desabre has named his provisional squad for the 2019 AFCON, which included Egypt based striker .

The Cranes were drawn in group A alongside hosts Egypt, DR Congo, and Zimbabwe. They will start their campaign by facing DR Congo on June 22, before playing Zimbabwe and Egypt on June 26 and June 30 respectively.

The majority of their squad for the tournament are from local sides, with the exception of three names, Bevis Mugabi of League Two side Yeovil Town, Khalid Aucho, who plies his trade in India, and Egypt based forward Daniel Isiagi.

The 23-year-old striker has joined Cairo based Al Nasr last summer following a two-week trial, however, he failed to get the team back to the Premier League as they finished seventh in the league table, with FC Masr securing the promotion spot.

Meanwhile, Smouha forward Derrick Nsibambi failed to make the cut despite featuring in 23 games for the Egyptian Premier League side.

Former Tala’ea El-Gaish midfielder  was also included in the squad despite being without a club since last January after being released by Egyptian club.
