Hamada Sidqi, the star of Al-Ahly and the former assistant coach of the Egyptian national team, believes that the choices of Hossam El-Badry, the coach of the Pharaohs, are good and must be respected.
Egypt is preparing for the Kenya and Comoros matches at the end of the 2021 African Nations Qualifiers in Cameroon.
FilGoal.com went to the former Egyptian football stars to ask them about the names that deserved to join the national team and is expected to shine and what is the most appropriate formation for the Pharaohs in the two matches.
Hamada Sidqi said toFilGoal.com: “The technical staff of the national team included the names that it deems worth according to the work and study of everyone.”
“His choices must be respected, and this controversy is regular and continuous, but it does not deserve all this amount of attack through social media and the bickering that we have seen,” he added.
He continued, “Any technical director starts with about 40 players and reduces them to 27, for example, then travels with 22, and it is natural for the coach to have a point of view and a vision for his needs.”
And he continued, “In such cases, I think it is better to announce the national team’s lists at a press conference during which media professionals have the opportunity to inquire about the criteria for including or excluding any player.”
He continued, “All the group that joined is irreproachable, and those who left the list are also distinguished and I respect what they presented, but the decisions of the technical staff must be adequately respected by everyone.”
“It is difficult to expect who will shine from among this group of players, but a player like Mohamed Salah is a permanent and continuous candidate to be the most dangerous and prominent in any lineup,” he stressed.
Hamada Sidqi chose the most appropriate formation for the Egyptian team against Kenya as follows:
Goal: Mohammed Al-Shennawi.
Defense: Muhammad Hani – Ahmed Hegazy – Al-Wensh – Ayman Ashraf.
Middle: Tariq Hamed – Muhammad Al-Nani – Afsha.
The attack: Mohamed Salah – Mostafa Mohamed – Trezeguet.
