Egypt announces World Cup squad

Mohamed Salah leads the pack as Egypt announces World Cup squad

May 16, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Egypt has released a preliminary 29-man squad list for the upcoming FIFA World Cup.

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. 29 players have been named and the number is set to be trimmed down to 23 before 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. A host of new players drafted are from clubs in the Egyptian league and one of such is Al Masry forward, Ahmed Gomaa. 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 and Ahmed Elmohamady, have all been included in the preliminary 29-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: Essam El Hadary (Al Taawoun, Saudi Arabia), Mohamed El-Shennawy (Al Ahly), Sherif Ekramy (Al Ahly), Mohamed Awad (Ismaily)


Defenders: Ahmed Fathi (Al Ahly), Saad Samir (Al Ahly), Ayman Ashraf (Al Ahly), Mahmoud Hamdy (Zamalek), Mohamed Abdel-Shafy (Al Fateh, Saudi Arabia) Ahmed Hegazi and Ali Gabr (both West Bromwich Albion, England), Ahmed Elmohamady (Aston Villa, England), Karim Hafez (RC Lens, France), Omar Gaber (Los Angeles FC, USA), Amro Tarek (Orlando City, USA)


Midfielders: Tarek Hamed (Zamalek), Mahmoud Abdel Aziz (Zamalek), Shikabala (Al Raed, Saudi Arabia), Abdallah Said (KuPS, Finland), Sam Morsy (Wigan Athletic, England), Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal, England), Kahraba (Al Ittihad, Saudi Arabia), Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City, England), Trezeguet (Kasimpasa, Turkey), Amr Warda (Atromitos, Greece)
