Ahly manager Mohamed Yussif has named the 20-man squad who will be travelling Tuesday night to Congo for Saturday's Leopards clash in round three of the group stage of the CAF Champions League.

"The team will hold the first training session in Congo on Wednesday afternoon," assistant coach Ahmed Ayob told the club's official website Tuesday.

The return of young forward Amr Gamal is the highlight of the squad.

Midfielders Ahmed Fathi and Hossam Asour and goalie Mosad Awad will skip the match and play for the national team in their friendly against Uganda Wednesday as the trio are suspended.

Egypt manager Bob Bradley had previously excused keeper Sherif Ekrami, defenders Wael Gomaa, Rami Rabia and Ahmed Shedid, and midfielder Mohamed Abu-Treika from national duty.

The Orlando 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.


Goalkeepers: Sherif Ekrami, Ahmed Adel, Mahmoud Abou El-Souod

Defenders: Wael Gomaa, Mohamed Nagib, Saad Samir, Sherif Abdel-Fadil, Sayed Mowad, Ahmed Shedid

Midfielders: Shehab Eldin, Mahmoud Trezeguet, Ahmed Nabil 'Manga', Ahmed Shokry, Rami Rabea, Walid Soliman, Abdullah El-Said

Strikers: Mohamed Abou-Treika, El-Sayed Hamdy, Dominik Da Silva, Amr Gamal
