The Pharaohs will face New Zealand in the semi-finals on March 22 in what will be Hossam Hassan’s first game in charge of the Pharaohs.

Hassan called up seven foreign-based players for the camp, led by Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, who has been struggling with injuries since the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Salah has played just twice for the Reds since the start of the year and Liverpool have tried to convince the Egyptian FA to exclude their star man from the March international break.

Speaking on the Liverpool star, EFA board member Ehab El-Komy said: “The coaching staff, the Football Association, and the Egyptian fans are all keen on Salah’s safety.

“If he is not 100% ready, the national team coaching staff will be even more cautious about his presence in the upcoming camp.

“We have two weeks ahead of us and his recovery may be complete.

“If Mohamed Salah is ready, we will be keen on his presence. Otherwise, a different talk will be held at the appropriate time.

“Even up to the date of the international agenda, if Salah plays in any match with Liverpool, he will be ready and we will call him up to join the Egyptian national team.

“We want things to be calm, especially since Hossam Hassan wants all players to be present for Egypt’s strong start under his leadership.”
