According to Egypt's assistant coach Usama Nabih, he would prefer to face Brazil in the 2018 FIFA World Cup group stages rather than Germany or Spain.
The Pharaohs right-hand man to coach Hector Cuper claims the Selecao plays a more open game than the European giants, Spain and Germany.
Egypt made history when they booked a spot at the global tournament following a 28-year absence and will hope to do well.

"Brazil plays open football that would allow us to use empty spaces in the field to make counter attacks, but Germany or Spain are more organised tactically," Nabih told an Egyptian sports show.
"The ability to qualify for the next stage of the World Cup depends on the group opponents the draw will reveal on December 1."
The African giants will finish their qualifying campaign by playing against Ghana away in Accra in a dead rubber after they topped Group E with 12 points.
