Ahead of their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Congo, Egypt coach Hector Cuper has called up 14 foreign-based players for the encounter.

The Pharaohs mentor has started preparing for the Group E clash set for Sunday, October 8 at Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria.

Egyptian media reports indicated that among those called up again is South African-based Amr Gamal, who joined Bidvest Wits on loan from Al Ahly.


Topping Group E with nine points, the Pharaohs are looking for a victory over Congo to boost their chances of a place in the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.

If Egypt win the encounter, they will only need Ghana to beat Uganda in their next Group E clash to ensure a place in Russia next year.

Egypt last made it to the World Cup in 1990 and hope to end their 28-year wait with an appearance in Russia.

The 14 foreign-based players

Goalkeepers: Essam El-Hadary (Taawoun, Saudi)

Defenders: Ahmed Elmohamady (Aston Villa, England), Mohamed Abdel-Shafi (Ahly Jeddah, KSA), Ahmed Hegazy (West Bromwich, England), Karim Hafiz (Lens, France)

Midfielders: Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal, England), Mahmoud “Trezeguet” Hassan (Kasimpasa, Turkey), Sam Morsi (Wigan, England), Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City, England)

Forwards: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool, England), Ahmed Koka (Sporting Braga, Portugal), Mostafa Fathi (Taawoun, Saudi), Mahmoud Kahraba (Ittihad Jeddah, KSA), Amr Gamal (Bidvest Wits, South Africa).
