ISMAILIA: Ismaili newly-signed players Essam Al-Hadari, Ahmed Abou-Mosallam and Mohamed Selliti could all be unavailable for the team s game against Mansoura on Thursday.
The Dervishes are yet to receive the trio s international cards from their former clubs, and the players may not be named for the Egyptian Premier League opener.
While Al-Hadari was brought from FC Sion in Switzerland, Abou-Mosallam was purchased from Ajaccio of France. Selliti joined the coastal club from Stade Tunisien.
Despite sending an official request to the French Football Federation (FFF) for Abou-Mosallam s international card, the FFF replied that there is no club in the country carrying the name Ismaili sent.
Ismaili officials could have misspelled Ajaccio s name when sending for the former AhlY player s card.
Al-Hadari and Selliti s previous clubs are also yet to send Ismaili their international cards.
