Egypt manager Bob Bradley has called up four players to his provisional squad after several Ahli players were released to their club.

The Pharaohs, who prepare for the World Cup qualifier against Ghana with a closed camp in Cairo, were forced to leave out 11 players to African champions Ahli this week.

As Egypt visit Ghana on October 15, Ahli play the Champions League semi-final at Cotonsport ten days earlier.

Subsequently, Bradley named Zamalek midfielder Ahmed Tawfik, Wadi Degla center-half Mohamed Abdul-Fattah, Dakhlia left-back Ahmed Samir and Harras Hodoud center-half Mahmoud Alaa.

The uncapped quartet are likely to be dropped when Bradley announces his final roster ahead of the Ghana clash next month.
