Egyptian National Football team coach Bob Bradley chose 25 players on Sunday to play the final round World Cup qualifier game against Ghana on 19 November.
Egypt needs to overturn a five-goal-deficit in the game that will be played in the 30 June Stadium. After losing to the Black Stars 6-1 on 15 October, this makes their chances of qualifying for the Brazil 2014 World Cup nearly impossible.
The team will play Zambia in a friendly game on Thursday to prepare for the Ghana game.
The players were:
Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekramy, Mohamed Sobhy, Ahmed Al-Shennawy
Defenders: Sherif Abdel Fadeel, Mohamed Naguib, Wael Gomaa, Rami Rabee’a, Hazem Emam, Ahmed Fathy, Sayed Moawad, Mohamed Abdel Shafy, Ahmed Shedid
Midfielders: Hossam Ashour, Hossam Ghaly, Ibrahim Salah, Mohamed Al-Nenny, Hosny Abd Rabu, Mohamed Abuotrika, Mahmoud Abdel Razek “Shikabala”, Walid Soliman, Ahmed Eid Abdelmalek
Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Amr Zaki, Mohamed Nagy “Gedo”, Mahmoud Abdel Moneim “Kahraba”
