Egypt Head Coach Hector Cuper has left out Liverpool forward Mohammed Salah in his final 25-man squad to face Ghana in their final FIFA World Cup qualifier in November.
The Pharaohs who have already secured qualification to their first World Cup in 27 years will be without Salah who has been their lead marksman throughout the qualifying rounds.
The 25-year-old forward was left out of the squad to avoid fatigue according to Cuper.
The Egyptian squad, however, included premier league duo Ahmed Hegazi and Ramadan Sobhi as well as 44-year old goalkeeper and captain Essam El-Hadary.
Egypt defeated the Black Stars 2-0 in the first leg in Alexandria back in November 2016.
