Also included in Wednesday’s match-day squad are the other new signings Luis Miquissone, Hossam Hassan and Ahmed Abdelkader, who are expected to make their league debut.

On the other hand, several other players didn’t make the cut such as Taher Mohamed Taher, Rami Rabia as well as the injured Walid Soliman.

Meanwhile, Mosimane was displeased with his team’s performance despite their convincing win over Niger’s Union Sportive de la Gendarmerie Nationale (USGN).

The Red Devils beat USGN 6-1 over the weekend to go through to the group stages of the Caf Champions League on a 7-2 aggregate.

While the result was great, Mosimane was not happy with his team’s performance.

“I told the players that if we want to win the CAF Champions League for the third time in a row, we have to win and qualify for the group stage,” Mosimane said after the game as quoted by Kingfut.

Full squad:

Goalkeepers: Ali Lotfi, Mostafa Shobier, Hamza Alaa

Defenders: Yasser Ibrahim, Badr Benoun, Ayman Ashraf, Mohamed Hany, Ali Maaloul

Midfielders: Hamdi Fathi, Akram Tawfik, Aliou Dieng, Mohamed Magdy Afsha, Amr El-Sulya, Luis Miquissone, Ahmed Abdelkader, Ammar Hamdi, Hussein El-Shahat, Percy Tau

Forwards: Hossam Hassan and Mohamed Sherif
