The Egyptian national team’s director has assured that the team contains no injuries ahead of the Africa Cup of Nation qualifier against Togo.

Egypt were drawn in Group G of the 2021 with Kenya, Togo, and Comoros.

They are set to resume the qualifiers next month as they face Togo twice, with the first encounter taking place on 9 November in Egypt, before they meet again eight days later away from home.

Barakat stated that Mohamed Hamdy El-Wensh suffers from no injuries, while Ahmed Hegazi was rested from Monday training due to jetlag.

“El-Wensh is 100% fit. We have reached out to Zamalek’s medical staff and coordinated everything with them, he is ready to play,” Barakat told ON Sport channel.

“El-Wensh’s good performances were what makes him qualified for a national team call up. If he was injured, he would never be summoned.

“We are highly optimistic about the outcome of these two games. El-Badry always speaks with the players about how he wants the national team to look.

“Hegazi joined the national team and took part in Monday training but was given a rest as he played only 48 hours ago.”

The Pharaohs had a poor start to the qualifiers, drawing their opening two games to Kenya and Comoros and will hope to get back to winning ways sooner than later.
