Pharaohs coach Hector Cuper announced on Monday a ten-man list of foreign-based players for Egypt's upcoming clash against Ghana in the World Cup qualifiers that are set to be played in Alexandria on 13 November.

Panetolikos winger Amr Warda is the only new player to join the roster as Cuper kept almost the same group who featured in Egypt's 2-1 win over Congo in the group opener, earlier this month.

The list includes Roma's classy winger Mohamed Salah and Arsenal's midfielder Mohamed Elneny who produced many convincing performances with their sides in the Serie A and the Premier League respectively.

The list of the home-based players will be announced later this month. 

Egypt, who are looking for their first Cup appearance since 1990, have made a good start in the World Cup qualifier with an away victory against Congo, while Ghana were held to a disappointing goalless draw at home by minnows Uganda.

The Pharaohs are leading group E with three points, two ahead of second-placed Ghana.

The ten players: 

Ahmed Elmohamady (Hull City, England), Mohamed Abdel-Shafi (Ahly Jeddah, KSA), Omar Gaber (Basel, Switzerland), Mahmoud Hassan Trezeguet (Mouscron, Belgium), Mohamed El-Neny (Arsenal, England), Mohamed Salah (Roma, Italy), Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City, England), Ahmed Hassan "Kouka" (Braga, Portugal), Mahmoud 'Kahraba' Abdel-Moneam (Ittihad Jeddah), Amr Warda (Panetolikos, Greece).
