No Hull City's Elmohamady For Egypt World Cup Play-off, Gedo Called Up
The Egyptian national team's technical staff, under the leadership of American manager Bob Bradley, has called up seven foreign-based players for the second-leg of the Africa World Cup playoff against Ghana on 19 November.
Hull City right winger Ahmed Elmohamady has been excluded from the squad, while his teammate Mohamed Nagy 'Gedo' has been selected.
“The final squad for the anticipated match will be announced on 9 November, two days before the team is due to start a closed camp at the Air Defence stadium [where the match will be held],” stated the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) Tuesday.
Ghana dominated the first-leg in Kumasi, surprisingly beating the seven-time Africa Cup of Nations champions 6-1.
The seven international players called up are: Hossam Ghali (Belgium's Lierse), Mohamed Salah, Mohamed El-Nenny (both Switzerland's FC Basel), Amr Zaki (Kuwait's Al-Salmiya), 'Gedo' (England's Hull City), Mahmoud Abdel-Menem 'Kahraba' (Swiss Luzern) and Ibrahim Salah (Saudi Arabia's Al-Orouba).
