The camp will start on Monday and last until 21 November and will include a friendly match against an unnamed opponent.

On 30 October, the Brazilian coach called up three foreign-based players for the camp including Omar Fayed, Mostafa Ashraf, and Bilal Mazhar before announcing the rest of the squad today.

The Egyptian Football Association is reportedly in negotiations with Congo, Guinea, and Mali football federations to arrange the opponent of the friendly game after the apology of the US U-23 team.
