Hady Khashaba, the star of Al-Ahly and the former Egyptian national team, sees Hossam El-Badry, the coach of the Pharaohs, have good choices, and there is no logic in the criticism directed at him.
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.
Hadi Khashaba said FilGoal.com: “Completely different with the wave of criticism of the choices of the coaching staff led by Hossam Al-Badri. Every player sees himself as the best, but it is natural that the coach is the owner of the last vision because he chooses based on many factors.”
He added, “He may be a very distinguished player in a technical point, but the needs of the match do not correspond to him, and therefore joining him at the expense of another player is illogical.”
And he continued, “Football is a game of rapid successive variables, the names that have joined them, and the names that have not been successful, have an opportunity to diligence and present themselves on the field again.”
“There is no technical director in the world who will rule out a player who could benefit from his plan because no one is working against himself.”
Regarding the player who is expected to shine with the national team, Hadi Khashaba said: “I expect Mohamed Magdy Afsha to appear at a good level.”
Regarding the most appropriate formation from his point of view to confront Kenya, Hadi Khashaba chose:
Goal: Mohammed Al-Shennawi.
Defense: Muhammad Hani – Ahmed Hegazy – Al-Wensh – Ayman Ashraf.
Middle: Muhammad Al-Nani – Al-Sulayyah – Afsha.
The attack: Mohamed Salah – Mostafa Mohamed – Trezeguet.
