Egypt and Al-Nasr midfielder Hosni Abd-Rabou is ready to play in Friday's clash with Al-Shabab in the ninth round of the Saudi league after recovering from a muscle injury.

According to Saudi newspaper Alwatan on Tuesday, Al-Nasr's new coach Daniel Carreno will play the 28-year-old midfielder from the start against Al-Shabab after he took part in Monday's training session without any problems.

Abd-Rabou was injured in the 2-1 victory over Al-Tawon on the 4th matchday of the Saudi League last month, where he scored his team's opener.

The Pharaohs midfielder joined Al-Nasr from Egyptian Premier League side Ismaily on a season-long loan during the summer transfer window.

Last season Abd-Rabou played in the Saudi Professionals League for Ittihad Jeddah, also on loan, scoring four goals in 12 appearances. The Saudi champions, however, failed to secure a permanent contract with Abd-Rabou.
