Hegazi, Gabr off to Russia

4th June

ALBION's defensive duo Ahmed Hegazi and Ali Gabr have been named in Egypt's 2018 World Cup squad.

The Pharaohs pair are Russia bound having been selected in a 23-man group that includes Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny.

Hegazi's inclusion caps a strong debut season for the Baggies centre half who was the only ever-present in the 2017/18 campaign, making 42 appearances.

And he'll be joined by our Zamalek loanee Gabr with whom he's cultivated a strong partnership in Egypt's back line.

Our boys will come up against Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay in Group A.

All the best!
