“Salah called me on phone yesterday and congratulated us on the qualification for which I thank him very much Sobhi said.

“But it is too early to talk about whether I will pick him to be with us in Tokyo 2020 Olympics. I will think about the players that my team need and then I will announce” BBC Sport quoted Gharib.
