CAIRO – 12 August 2018: Al-Ahly’s French manager Patrice Carteron announced on Sunday a squad of 22 players for the game against Lebanon’s Nejmeh SC on Monday night at the Arab Club Champions Cup round of 32 first leg.

Al-Ahly’s foreign players, Ali Maaloul, Walid Azzaro and Salif Coulibaly were ruled out of the game for technical reasons while Eslam Mohareb and Amr El Soleya will miss the game for injury.




Carteron’s chosen squad for the game consists of Sherif Ekramy, Mohamed el-Shennawy, Ali Lotfi, Ahmed Fathi, Mohamed Hany, Saad Samir, Ayman Ashraf, Mohamed Naguib, Sabry Rahil, Hossam Ashour, Ahmed Hamoudi, Hesham Mohamed, Mido Gaber, Akram Tawfik, Ahmed Hamdy, Karim Nedved, Walid Soliman, Moamen Zakaria, Nasser Maher, Mohamed Sherif, Marwan Mohsen and Salah Mohsen.

Al-Ahly hopes to influence the Egyptian teams’ results at the competition after Zamalek and Al-Ittihad ended their games with a draw against Qadsia and Espérance respectively, while Ismaily will face Kuwait on Sunday night at Ismailia.

Al-Ahly was knocked out of the competition last season at semi-finals losing to Jordan’s Al-Faisaly 2-1.
