Spain friendly

We're going to play La Furia Roja on Saturday. The game will be held at the Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero in Elche.





Mido is suspended while Amr Zaki is out with a knee injury, which significantly weakens us upfront. Emad Meteb has regained his form though and that's positive news.

With Ibrahim Said having his usual disciplinary problems and thus not getting a call-up, expect Emad el Nahas to occupy his place at libero.

Still no Zidan...

Expect more or less the same team that won the ANC. 7/8 players from Ahly in addition to Ahmed Hassan (recently signed for Andrelecht), El Saka (still at Konyaspor) and Hosny Abd Rabo (relegated Strasbourg)

Hopefully we'll put on a satisfactory performance.

Meteb - Hamza or Meteb -Ga3far would be acceptable.

I do think we have a good defence though so not expecting anything similar to our game at France.

Midfield is our strongest line. Ahmed Hassan, Trieka, Barakat, Shawky and Hassan Mustafa. This would be my ideal lune-up:

--------------------El-Hadary--------------------
---------------------Nahhas---------------------
------Gomaa-----------------------El-Saka------
-Fathy----------------------------------Wehab-
-------------Mustafa-------A.Hassan------------
---------Barakat----------------Trieka----------
--------------------Meteb----------------------

Hamza, Ga3far, AbdRabo, Eid, Eino, Mosalem, and Halim on the bench.

I don't think we sucked, to me tonight's performance was better compared to any match we played in the African Nations Cup. Egypt missed the efforts of both Mido and Zaki, don't you forget that. Not to mention that Spain happen to be a quality team.

Wael Goma'a was rock solid as usual, flawless. In my eyes, he was our best player.

We had three huge chances, two in which we were unfortunate not to score (Treika's curler in the first half and Halim's header that required a massive, massive save from Casillas) as well as a very bad miss from Treika after Casillas gave him a gift.

A loss in a friendly is no biggie, live and learn. :smileani:

Beautiful game tonight guys! Abu Trika and Metab are overrated to be honest! Abu Trika was a watse of space tonight doing nothing as well as Metab. Abdel Halim as limited as he is, headed a beautiful ball that required a superman save from Casillas. Ahmad Hasan is a brilliant player no doubt about that, a true leader and a true star.

I was a lil bit annoyed with Barakat position tonight, why the hell he played as a RB?!

Spain is a terrible team to be honest and if they play like that in the WC, they will get humiliated!

Vamos Argentina!

Never seen Barakat playing as RB?!I thought he was there only for this game!

Abu Trika might be a good player but you should have seen last night and how he was shaking whenever he finds the ball coming to him. I expected much more from him.

The happy surprise is Mohammed Abdel Wahab. He made Ramos looks like a fool with his runs and that nutmeg

Vamos Argentina!

You must have missed the Nations Cup then. p

RB (or to be more precise, RWB) isn't his natural position but he was utilised in that role in Ahly for nearly the entire season back in 2004/05 as well as the ANC.

Overall Barakat wasn't himself yesterday (should've put more pressure on Lopez to prevent that shot, didn't do much attacking or link-up with midfield) but anyone would struggle to contain Reyes though, especially a playmaker playing out of position. Which would explain why Shehata introduced Ahmed Fathy instead.

They are not a terrible team but if they play like that, I agree, they will not win anything.
Spain lost possesion too easily, especially for a team that had two defensive midfielders and Cesc alone, trying to set up the offense. Hopefully, that will not be the starting XI.

Egypt should have scored a couple.

GrÓcies Pare, descansi en pau.
