CAIRO – 7 March 2018: The Egyptian National Team's coaching staff, headed by Hector Cuper, has decided to include Marwan Mohsen in the squad going to the March training camp.
The Pharaohs are preparing for the two friendly matches held in Switzerland, against Portugal and Greece on March 23 and 27, respectively, ahead of the 2018 World Cup.
Mohsen was the national team's striker in the CAF African Cup of Nations until he suffered an injury in the cruciate ligament, which prevented him from participating in the national team games in the African qualifiers for the World Cup. After nearly a year, Mohsen returned to participate with Al Ahly, making notable performance in the local and African competitions.
Mohsen's last appearance was in the round of 32 of the CAF African Champions League with Al Ahly in the game against the Gabonese team Mounana, where Marwan managed to score a spectacular goal as he manipulated with the defense of the Gabonese team before shooting the ball on the right side of the goalkeeper.
The national team staff will announce the final list of the local players going to the camp on March 11, after they had announced the list of the international players, which includes:
Essam el Hadary, Mahmoud Abdel Razek (Shikabala), Ahmed el Mohammady, Mohamed Abdel Shafy, Ahmed Hegazi, Mohamed el Neny, Omar Gaber, Ahmed Hassan (Koka), Mahmoud Abdel Moneim (Kahraba), Mahmoud Hassan (Trezeguet), Moamen Zakaria, Ali Gabr, Ramadan Sobhi, Amr Warda, Sam Morsy and Hussein el Shahat.
