Egypt will face Belgium in a friendly game on Friday 18 November in Kuwait as part of the Belgium team's preparations for this month’s World Cup.

The Pharaohs started a preparation camp last week in Cairo with the participation of 24 local-based players.

On Friday, Pharaohs coach Rui Vitoria announced the final 24-man list that saw the call-up of eight foreign-based players.

According to the Egyptian Football Association (EFA), Liverpool star Mohamed Salah will join the Pharaohs on Monday.

Earlier this week, Vitoria said that Belgium’s friendly will be very difficult, but stressed that his side is ready for this tough challenge.

Belgium were drawn in Group F of the World Cup with Morocco, Croatia and Canada.
