Morsy Left Out of Final Egypt Squad
Friday, 1st Oct 2021 17:19
Town midfielder Samy Morsy has been left out of the final Egypt squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Libya during the international break.
Morsy, 29, had been named on the provisional list but manager Carlos Queiroz has left him out of his final squad.
The Egyptians host Libya in Cairo on Friday 8th October and then face the same opposition again three days later in Benghazi.
Had he been included, Morsy would have missed Town’s games at Gillingham in the Papa John’s Trophy on Tuesday and the home League One match with Shrewsbury next Saturday.
The midfielder has previously won seven Egypt caps with his last appearance as a sub against Eswatini in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in 2018.
Bersant Celina is the only senior Town player to have been called up ahead of the international week, having been named in the Kosovo squad earlier today.
Egypt: Mohamed El-Shennawy (Al Ahly SC), Mohamed Abou-Gabal (Zamalek SC), Mohamed Bassam (Tala’a El-Gaish), Mohamed Sobhi (Pharco FC), Ahmed Fetouh, Mahmoud El-Wensh (Zamalek SC), Ayman Ashraf, Akram Tawfik, Yasser Ibrahim (Al Ahly SC), Ahmed Fathy (Pyramids FC), Baher Elmohamady (Ismaily SC), Ahmed Hegazi (Ittihad Jeddah), Hamdi Fathi, Amr El-Sulya (Al Ahly SC), Tarek Hamed, Ahmed Sayed Zizo (Zamalek SC), Abdallah El-Said, Ramadan Sobhi, Ibrahim Adel (Pyramids FC), Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Omar Marmoush (Stuttgart), Ahmed Hassan ‘Kouka’ (Konyaspor), Mostafa Mohamed (Galatasaray).

The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
