Salah returns as Egypt target crucial wins


Mohamed Salah has been included in new Egypt head coach Hossam Hassan’s squad for this month’s crucial 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Niger and Djibouti.

The Liverpool star missed the Pharaohs’ friendlies in March due to injury but is back in the fold as Egypt aim to strengthen their grip on Group A.

Salah’s return is a major boost for Hassan, who also hands a first senior call-up to Ibrahim Adel after the Pyramids winger starred for the U-23 side that reached last year’s Africa Cup of Nations final.

However, there is no place in the 26-man squad for Al Ahly full-back Omar Kamal, who featured regularly under former boss Carlos Queiroz.

Egypt currently top their qualifying section with six points from wins over Djibouti and Sierra Leone last November.

But with only the group winners guaranteed to progress automatically to the 2026 finals in the USA, Canada and Mexico, Hassan knows his side cannot afford any slip-ups.
