Egypt's FIFA World Cup squad and players to watch

The Pharaohs will find themselves battling the likes of hosts Russia, Uruguay, and Saudi Arabia. As a result, manager of the side, Hector Cuper has not taken things lightly in terms of bringing in the right personnel, knowing the potential of the oppositions he will be facing. The 29 players that were named in the preliminary list have been trimmed down to 23 ahead of the commencement of the summer's tournament. 

Coach's Objective

With Premier League Golden Boot winner Mohamed Salah in his ranks, Coach Hector Cuper will aim at putting up a real fight in Group A. Uruguay is undoubtedly the people's choice to top the group but football's unpredictability could serve up anything. That withstanding, progressing to the Last 18 stage to likely meet either of Spain and Portugal would still be an admirable accomplishment for the North Africans. 

New Faces

Aside Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and injured Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny who is expected to be fit before the commencement of the World Cup, do not boast many renowned outfield players. However, one youngster who has the potential to shine in their ranks is Stoke City's Ramadan Sobhi. A few players are also coming in from clubs in Saudi Arabia, the EPL, and the MLS.

Veterans

The ageless shot-stopper, Essam El Hadary, alongside defender Mohamed Abdel-Shafy, Tarek Hamed and Abdallah El Said have all been included in the final 23-man shortlist.

Major absentees

Silky midfielder Walid Soliman dubbed the "Egyptian Magician", has been omitted as he is currently recuperating from an injury.

Below Is the full 29-man shortlist:

Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekramy (Al Ahly), Essam El Hadary (Al Taawoun), Mohamed El Shennawy (Al Ahly)

Defenders: Mohamed Abdel-Shafi (Al Fateh), Ayman Ashraf (Al Ahly), Ahmed Elmohamady (Aston Villa), Ahmed Fathi (Al Ahly), Omar Gaber (Los Angeles FC), Ali Gabr (Zamalek), Mahmoud Hamdy (Zamalek), Ahmed Hegazi (West Bromwich Albion), Saad Samir (Al Ahly)

Midfielders: Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal), Abdallah El Said (Al Ahly Jeddah), Tarek Hamed (Zamalek), Mahmoud Kahraba (Al Ittihad Jeddah), Sam Morsy (Wigan Athletic), Shikabala (Al Raed), Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City), Mahmoud Hassan (Kasimpasa), Amr Warda (Atromitos)

Forwards: Marwan Mohsen (Al Ahly), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
