The Head Coach of Egypt, Carlos Manuel Britol Queiroz has released the country’s final list of 25 players to represent the nation in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon early next year.
The Portuguese tactician made the list public on Wednesday December 29, 2021.
The Pharaohs’ squad is led by Liverpool FC free-scoring forward, Mohamed Salah.
The 2017 AFCON runners up who has scored over 17 goals this season for the English side, will be jetting into Cameroon accompanied by a squad dominated by home based players plying their trades in the Egyptian top flight football championship, the Egyptian Premier League.
Amongst them will be Al Ahly CAF Champions League winning goalkeeper and skipper Mohamed El Sheneway and his goalkeeping mate Mohamed Abogabal of Zamalek SC both of Cairo.
The record seven time winners will be heading to Cameroon with six defenders including Al Ahly pair of Ayman Ashraf, 30 and Akram Tawfik.
The team will be banking on seven midfielders, including Abdallah El-Said and Ramadan Sobhi both from 2020 CAF Confederations Cup runners up, Pyramids FC of Egypt.
Five players made the cut for the Pharaoh’s attacking compartment led by Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Turkey based youngster Mostafa Mohamed who recently joint Galatasaray from Zamalek SC on permanent basis and Mahmoud Hassan Trezeguet of Aston Villa in England.
Trezeguet is the surprised member of the squad, having made the final 25-man squad despite being inactive from competitive football in over seven months due to injury.
The 26-year-old suffered a knee ligament damage in August this year while on duty for club Aston Villa in the English Premier League.
Egypt is based in Group D of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The record 7 time holders will be facing three time winners, the Super Eagles of Nigeria, one time winners Sudan and Guinea Bissau at the renovated Garoua Roumde Adjia Stadium
Egypt which recently reached the semifinals of the 2021 FIFA Arab World Cup in Qatar, will be hunting for a record extending 8th title in the land of the Indomitable Lions.
