Egypt's assistant coach Ossama Nabih said on Thursday that the Pharaohs do not fear Portugal ace Cristiano Ronaldo, adding that the Egyptian team are determined to perform well during the Portugal friendly.
Egypt will face Portugal in a World Cup warm-up in Switzerland on the 23rd of this month before playing against Greece four days later.
"Cristiano Ronaldo? We are capable of stopping him," Nabih told reporters on Thursday.
"We will be well prepared for this game and I am sure that we will perform well against them to gain a dose confidence ahead of the World Cup."
Nabih revealed that the Pharaohs technical staff is still considering the names of local based players for the Switzerland trip, revealing that the final list could see the presence of one or two new players.
Pharaohs coach Hector Cuper has called up 17 foreign-based players on Tuesday, but the rest of the group is yet to be announced.
"We are considering calling up one or two new players, but the others are known for all. There are no surprises in our squad."
Egypt, who reached the World Cup after a 28-year absence, were drawn in group A alongside hosts Russia, Uruguay and Saudi Arabia.
