Egypt held their Tuesday training session at full strength after their foreign-based players, including Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, linked up with the national team after ending weekend commitments with their respective clubs.

Aston Villa winger Mahmoud Trezeguet, Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny and Olympiacos' in-form striker Ahmed 'Kouka' Hassan were also present as Egypt continued their preparations for a double-header against Togo in the African Nations Cup qualifiers.

The Pharaohs host Togo in Cairo on Saturday before meeting them away from home three days later in Group G.

Egypt made a poor start to their qualifying campaign, having been held to draws by minnows Kenya and Comoros.

Comoros top the group with four points, two ahead of Kenya and Egypt. Togo lie at the bottom with a single point.

The top two will advance to the African Nations Cup finals, which will take place in January 2022 in Cameroon.
