Egypt name squad for Swaziland double

Egypt vs. Niger

Egypt manager Javier Aguirre has named a 27-man squad for the Pharaohs’ two upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Swaziland.

The Mexican tactician’s list remains largely unchanged from his inaugural squad as Egypt manager, which beat Niger 6-0 last month.

The most notable alternations are up-front, where Ahmed Ali was added while Ahmed Gomaa and Hossam Hassan were dropped.

The Pharaohs will host the first match on October 12 in Cairo, before heading to Manzini for the second contest on October 16.

Egypt is currently second in Group J, three points behind leaders Tunisia.

The top two teams from each of the 12 groups will advance to next summer’s finals in Cameroon.
