"We have been following this team for a while and we know everything, a strong team," he said. "Friday's game will be important because it's the start of the tournament in Egypt."

For his part, Mohammedi stressed that the players, led by Mohammed Salah, the Liverpool star, English fans are preparing to win the title for his country.

"We are ready for the championship and for the beginning of the tournament, the tournament is at our home and in the midst of our fans and we must win and everyone is ready for it."

"There will be no negative pressure on us and it will be a source of strength for us and we are happy to play in the Cairo Stadium," which can accommodate up to 75,000 spectators.

"We are very balanced and not so easy," he said.
