The Egyptian national team's technical staff, under the leadership of Argentinean manager Hector Cuper, welcomed on Tuesday three new members ahead of the anticipated 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.

English nutritionist Laurent Bannock, Irish trainer John Kelly and Argentinean assistant coach Gustavo have joined the Pharaohs preparatory camp in Switzerland.

The preparatory camp will continue until 28 March, with the team playing two friendlies against Portugal on 23 March and Greece on the 27 March.

Egypt, who reached the world's most prestigious tournament after ending a 28-year old drought, will conclude preparations in May with another training camp.

Egypt have been placed in Group A of the competition along with hosts Russia, Uruguay and Saudi Arabia.
