Egypt kicked off their preparations for the opening two games in the Nations Cup qualifiers in Alexandria on Tuesday.

The Pharaohs will host Kenya on 14 November before facing Comoros away from home four days later.

Alexandria's camp, which will include a friendly against Liberia on Thursday, will be a good opportunity for Egypt's new coach Hossam El-Badri to test his new players ahead of the two clashes.

El-Badry had called up a preliminary 32-man squad for the camp last week which included four new faces such as Zamalek winger Ahmed 'Zizo' Sayed, Ahly fullback Mahmoud Wahid, Pyramids FC winger Eslam Issa and Wadi Degla striker Marwan Hamdi.

Pyramids' seven players missed Alexandria's training camp as the club said earlier on Tuesday that they will join the camp 72 hours before the Kenya match.   

Egypt were drawn in Group G with Kenya, Comoros and Togo.

The top two in the group will qualify for the 2021 Nations Cup in Cameroon.
