Mido's status with Pharaohs is uncertain

[EGYPT] Egypt, which will face the USA in their final group game at the Confederations Cup later this month, did not include its best-known player, Mido, in its preliminary 28-player squad for a pair of World Cup qualifiers and the Confederations Cup for what was described as "tactical reasons," but Coach Hassan Shehata said the EPL striker could be recalled.

Shehata's remarks followed Saturday's friendly game in Oman, where the Pharaohs prevailed, 1-0.

Mido, who played in 2009 on loan from Middlesbrough to Wigan, has been in and out of the Pharaohs' squad because of differences with coaches and players. He will miss also World Cup qualifiers against Algeria on Sunday and Rwanda on July 5.

EGYPT ROSTER:
Goalkeepers: Essam Al Hadari (Sion, Switzerland), Abdul Wahed Al Sayed (Zamalek), Mohamed Sobhi (Ismaili), Al Hani Soliman (Itiihad Alexandria).
Defenders: Hani Said (Zamalek), Mahmoud Fathallah (Zamalek), Wael Gomaa (Al Ahli), Sherif Abdul Fadhil (Ismaili), Ahmed Said (Haras Hodoud), Ahmed Al Muhammadi (ENPPI), Sayed Moawad (Al Ahli), Hazem Emam (Zamalek), Ahmed Samir Farag (Ismaili).
Midfielders: Ahmed Fathi (Al Ahli), Mohamed Shawki (Middlesbrough), Hosni Abd Rabu (Al Ahli Dubai), Ahmed Khairy (Ismaili), Mohamed Soliman (Ismaili), Abdul Aziz Tawfiq (ENPPI), Ahmed Hassan (Al Ahli), Mohamed Aboutrika (Al Ahli).
