Pyramids FC said their injured trio Mohamed Farouk, Nabil Emad Dunga and Eric Traore had fully recovered and are ready for the team's game against Zamalek in the Egypt Cup final on Sunday.

The 29-year-old winger Farouk did not play in the recent Egypt Cup games nor the preliminary round of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League due to a knee injury he had sustained during the pre-season preparatory camp.

The 23-year-old Pharaohs midfielder Dunga suffered a light cramp in the Egypt Cup semi-final against Petrojet, which ended with Pyramids' victory with two goals with no reply. During the same game, the Burkinabe winger Traore was substituted at the 74th minute after he had suffered from a bruise in his ankle.

Pyramids FC, formerly Al-Assiouty, reached Egypt Cup final for the first time ever after beating Petrojet 2-0 in the semi-finals on Monday.

Meanwhile, holders Zamalek are looking to grab another cup title after winning five in the last six editions of the domestic tournament.
