Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been named in Egypt's 29-man preliminary World Cup squad.
The 25-year-old has impressed in his first season at Anfield, scoring 44 goals in all competitions and being named Premier League Player of the Year.
However, Salah will miss Egypt's friendly against Kuwait on May 26 due to his expected participation in the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev.
Pharaohs manager Hector Cuper has included numerous England-based players including Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny, West Bromwich Albion duo Ahmed Hegazi and Ali Gabr, Stoke City's Ramadan Sobhi, Ahmed Elmohamady of Aston Villa and Wigan Athletic's Sam Morsy.
Al-Taawoun goalkeeper and Essam El-Hadary could become the oldest player to feature at the World Cup at the age of 45, which would break the record set by Colombia's then 43-year-old goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon at Brazil 2014.
Egypt qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1990 and will play in Group A along with hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay.
