CAIRO, 11 May 2019: Hani Ramzi, general coach of the Egyptian national team revealed that the team's coaching staff is currently in the process of selecting the African Cup of Nations list.

"The coaching staff led by Javier Aguirre is holding several meetings in order to settle on the list of Egypt's team in the African Nations Cup." Hani Ramzi told Filgoal website.

"We are still studying things from all sides, and we are seeking stability on the best elements that can be relied upon." Ramzi added.

The Egyptian national team was put in an easy group in the draw which was held in Egypt on Friday.

Egypt came in Group A with the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda and Zimbabwe in the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

The AFCON starts on June 21 and ends on July 19. The tournament takes place with the participation of 24 teams in six groups for the first time in the history of the African competition.

Egypt won the rights to host the tournament after being selected over South Africa.
The 2019 African Cup of Nations was initially scheduled to be hosted by Cameroon. However, Cameroon was stripped of hosting the tournament for serious delays in preparations.

Egypt is the most successful nation in the history of the competition as Egypt has won a record of seven titles including three in a row between 2006 and 2010.
