The squad of 30 players has been cut down to 24. Strangely, no goalkeepers were cut meaning that there will be one healthy scratch- probably Toufic Ali- on the day of the game. The cuts that were made are as follows:
Abdelhamid Abuhabeeb (injured), Hesham Salhe (injured), Imad Zatara (Syrianska refused to release him), Rafit Eyad, Ahmed Harbi, & Khaled Salem.
The team is also expecting the late arrival of Ehab Abujazr who was due to join up with the team in Dubai (no information as of yet as to whether or not he was able to do that).
If Abujazr isn't able to join up with the team Bezaz might need to consider playing three at the back with Abusidu, Bahdari, and Jarun. Alternatively he could play Abusidu on the left and restore Husam Abu Saleh at right back.
The midfield picks itself: Ismael Amour, Samara, and Abu Bilal will support Murad Alyan while Houssam Wadi will be played alongside Khader Youssef as the doble pivotes that Bezaz is currently favoring.
