Egypt have penned down November 9 to unveil their full roster for the return leg World Cup play-off against Ghana.
Coach Bob Bradley has already given a call-up to seven foreign-based players for the second-leg tie in Cairo.
The seven are Hossam Ghali (Belgium's Lierse), Mohamed Salah, Mohamed El-Nenny (both Switzerland's FC Basel), Amr Zaki (Kuwait's Al-Salmiya), 'Gedo' (England's Hull City), Mahmoud Abdel-Menem 'Kahraba' (Swiss Luzern) and Ibrahim Salah (Saudi Arabia's Al-Orouba).
Hull City’s Ahmed Elmohamady has been axed from the squad.
The Black Stars are in a pole position to book one out of the five slots reserved for Africa at the World Cup after thrashing the Pharaohs 6-1 in Kumasi last month.
