Egypt coach Bob Bradley has named Wael Gomaa and Al-Sayed Hamdi as the only Al Ahly players in his squad to play Ghana next Thursday in a friendly.

Ahly are busy a day before the pre-Africa Cup of Nations friendly when they face Saudi Arabia’s Hilal for the farewell of former defender Abdullah Al-Sharida.

It has been agreed that Gomaa and Hamdi stay with the Pharaohs, while five players join Ahly before returning to the national team for the Ivory Coast friendly on January 14.

“We agreed to release only Hamdi and Gomaa. The rest of our internationals will join after the Hilal game,” Ahli football director Sayed Abdul-Hafiz said.

Egypt engage the Black Stars in Abu Dhabi as part of the latter’s preparations for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Ghana will also play the Carthage Eagles on 13 January as their final competitive match.
