Benin striker Razak Omotoyossi has been included in Zamalek’s squad for Tuesday’s Egypt Cup final against ENPPI.

Omotoyossi, who turned 26 on Saturday, can make his competitive debut in the anticipated clash after completing his move to Zamalek from Swedish side Syrianska for $150,000.

The combative striker impressed in a friendly game against lower division Shams earlier this week, scoring two goals in a 3-1 victory.

Zamalek, who are enjoying a new lease of life under new coach Hassan Shehata, are seeking to end a three-year title drought.

The Cairo giants have not won any title since lifting the Egypt Cup trophy in 2008 at the expense of ENPPI.

Zamalek squad:

Goalkeepers: Abdel-Wahed El-Sayed, Mahmoud Abdel-Rehim “Gennesh”

Defenders: Hazem Emam, Mahmoud Fathallah, Karimu Alhassan, Ahmed Samir, Mohamed Abdel-Shafy, Sabri Rahil, Salah Soliman

Midfielders: Ibrahim Salah, Ahmed Tawfik, Ahmed Hassan, Ahmed El-Merghany, Mahmoud Abdel-Razek “Shikabala”, Alaa Ali, Omar Gaber

Forwards: Amr Zaki, Ahmed Gaafar, Razak Omotoyossi, Hussein Hamdy
