Egypt coach Bob Bradley is bemoaning the lacking fire power in his team ahead of their World Cup playoff second-leg match against Ghana.
The Pharaohs are in desperate need of goals to turn the seemingly already won ties around on November 19.
Egypt must score five unanswered goals against the Black Stars in order to qualify for their first ever World Cup finals since 1990.
The highly unexpected result is now being compounded with coach Bob Bradley’s admission of lacking strikers in his side.
“I included Shikabala in the Egypt lineup for the Ghana encounter to put stress on the opponent’s defence,” the American trainer said.
“Egypt’s squad suffers a lack of sharp strikers, as Gedo, Amr Zaki and Zidan are away from playing for a long time.”
The Pharaohs will however have to make do of what they have by the time the Black Stars zoom into Cairo for the second-leg clash.
They will begin preparations towards the game to be played at the Air Defence Stadium in Cairo on Tuesday.
