Egypt recently announced its squad for the upcoming African Cup of Nations (AFCON 2022). Carlos Queiroz, the Egyptian manager, has announced the 25-man squad for the Pharaohs, who will compete in Africa’s highly recognized tournament starting from Jan 9.
Egypt has been drawn in Group D, where they will face Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau and Sudan. The Pharaohs will be led by Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah who has been in a rich vein of form this season having scored abundant goals in all competitions.
Besides him, Mohamed Elneny, Arsenal’s midfielder, will dictate the game from midfield. Mahmoud Hassan Trezeguet of Aston Villa is another vital player who has been called up by Carlos Queiroz.
