Egypt coach Hossam El-Badry has named the six foreign-based players he will use for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Kenya and Comoros Islands next month.
The list includes winger Kahraba from Spanish side C.D Aves, who has not featured for The Pharaohs since the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Liverpool star Mo Salah is also on the list after he skipped last month’s 1-0 friendly win over Botswana, while Mahmoud Trezeguet from Aston Villa also gets the nod.
Ahmed Hegazi (West Bromwich Albion), Mohamed Elneny (Besiktas) and Ahmed Hassan (SC Braga) are the others.
El-Badry previously named a locally-based squad that will go into camp on Monday, with that selection joined by the overseas-based six at the start of the FIFA International window.
Egypt play their first Nations Cup qualifier against Kenya on November 15, with the second with Comoros four days later.
The team are seeking to banish the demons of their second round exit to South Africa on home soil this year.
