Russia 2018 : EPL Based Players Dominate Egypt’s Squad For Friendlies


The Pharaohs’ coach has picked West Brom duo Ali Gabr and Ahmed Hegazi, Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City), Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal) and of course Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) for the friendlies against Portugal and Greece in preparation for Russia. Other players who made the squad are from other European leagues such as Belgium and Turkey. The coach is expected to add more Egyptian based players in the coming few days
