Zamalek manager Helmi Toulan announces his 19-man squad travelling Tuesday night for South Africa to play Orlando Pirates Saturday in the third round of the CAF Champions League group stage.

Goalkeeper Abdel-Wahed El-Sayed is back on the squad after complications with the board made him disappear for a while.

Striker Ahmed Gafar and defender Mahmoud Fathallah were suspended and therefore, excluded from the squad.

"The Pirates game will be really tough as the opponents are organised and include really powerful key players," the team's Assistant Coach Osama Nabih told the Cairo-based club's official website Tuesday. The Pirates are currently leading Group A with one goal difference with the Leopards, both of which have four points, while Ahly and rivals Zamalek have a point each.

The squad:

Goalkeepers: Abdel-Wahed El-Sayed, Mahmoud Abdel-Rehim 'Gennesh'

Defenders: Mahmoud Hamdy, Saleh Soliman, Hamada Tolba, Ahmed Naser, Hani Said, Mohamed Abdel-Shafy, Ahmed Samir

Midfielders: Hazem Emam, Nour El-Sayed, Ahmed Hassan, Omar Gaber, Said Mohamed 'Otta', Ahmed Tawfik, Islam Awad.

Strikers:  Mohamed Ibrahim, Ahmed Eid Abdel-Malek, Mahmoud Abdel-Razek 'Shikabala'
