Abdallah El-Said and Hossam Ashour sustained injuries in Alhly’s CAF engagements and have been ruled out of the clash.

Mahmoud Abdel-Monem “Kahraba” suffered a leg injury as well and all the three have been replaced by Moemen Zakareya, Hossam Hassan and Mohamed Fathi.

“Saleh Gomaa will be a suitable replacement for the injured Abdallah El-Said,” Cuper said.

“I am convinced by the performance of Saleh Gomaa, as well as any player in the team squad who can participate, according to the needs of the game.

“Egypt’s national team will be affected by the absence of injured forward Kahraba,” he added.
