Egypt have included two new players in their 22-man squad for the 2006 World Cup qualifier against Libya on 8 October in Tripoli.
Marco Tardelli has named two new players in his latest Egypt squad
Egypt's Italian coach Marco Tardelli summoned the 20-year-old
goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy from Al Ahly and striker Tamer Adel from
second division side Arab Contractors.
Ekramy made a name for himself with outstanding performances at last year's World Youth Championships in the United Arab Emirates.
The young 'keeper, who was also the captain of the team, won a place in Fifa's All-Star team for the tournament.
Ekramy seems to be following the famous footsteps of his father Ahmed, who is considered as one of Africa's all-time goalkeeping greats.
One big name that is not on the list is the Al Ahly striker Ahmed Bilal, who failed to pass a fitness test.
Tardelli has also ignored the Zamalek duo of Hazem Emam and Abdel Halim Ali, as a result of their poor performance in the domestic league.
Other names not in the squad are AS Roma's Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam, Al Ahly goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary, Zamalek's Tamer Abdel Hamid and the Denmark-based Mohamed Zidan.
Egypt are currently second in Group Three and are two points behind leaders Ivory Coast.
Cameroon, Libya, Benin and Sudan are the other teams in the group.
