CAIRO: Ahly forward Mohamed Abou-Trika joined his team’s Monday training straight after featuring in Egypt’s 4-0 over Djibouti in Sunday’s African World Cup qualifier.

The Red Devils’ official website said that the club’s coaching staff decided that Abou-Trika should take part in a Monday light training session as part of the team’s preparations for the Enyimba game on Oct. 18.

Abou-Trika, Wael Gomaa and goal keeper Amir Abdel-Hamid all joined the training on Monday after the pair’s participation against Djibouti.

Egypt skipper Ahmed Hassan was the only international player allowed to skip Monday’s training after facing Djibouti.
