Egypt-based defender Athar Attahir is the lone professional player in the 36-man squad that was unveiled on Tuesday ahead of the tournament that begins on January 9.

Three surprise omissions are Italy-based Ammar Tayfour, Al Hilal’s Faris Abdallah and Mohamed Abdel-Rahman who was recently on the books of Algerian side Ahly Burj Bou Arriredj.

Domestic giants Al Merrikh are the most represented team in the 36-man squad, contributing nine players.
