Three Teams Primed to Shock Their World Cup Groups

Three Teams Primed to Shock Their World Cup Groups

However, the record African Cup of Nations winners, Egypt, are set to enter the tournament with a far more unsafe team. Veteran goalkeeper Essam El Hadary is also in line to become the oldest ever player in the competition.

The Premier League Golden Boot victor, however, will miss the Pharaoh's match against Kuwait on May 26 as he is participating in Liverpool's Champions League final showdown with Real Madrid in Kiev on the same day.

The Pharaohs have been drawn in Group A alongside World Cup hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay, and will prepare for their first appearance at the showpiece since 1990 with a friendly against Kuwait on 26 May, before facing Belgium on 6 June.

Egypt begin their World Cup campaign against Uruguay on 15 June.




Besides Salah and Elneny, five more England-based players were chosen: West Bromwich Albion defenders Ahmed Hegazy and Ali Gabr, Stoke winger Ramadan Sobhy, Aston Villa defender Ahmed Elmohamady and Wigan midfielder Sam Morsy.

"We have achieved some goals, but we have not reached the ceiling of our ambitions", said Cuper, who has been in charge since 2015.

Egypt will play away to Kuwait on 25 May, tackle Colombia in Italy on 1 June and then travel to Belgium on 6 June in three World Cup warm-up matches before travelling to Russian Federation.
