Egypt had failed to qualify for the World Cup after losing to Senegal 3-1 in a penalty shootout.

Mido said in televised statements on the “Al-Mehwar” channel: “It is hard for you to all Egyptians. There are differences at the individual level between us and the Senegalese team, as I said in the first leg.”

And he continued: “We did not do anything to acquit us of being in the World Cup, and we did not play a ball with (three pounds), as I spoke after the first leg, I was not mad at anyone.”

And he added: “Some people criticized me and said criticism in the first match was a mistake, but we do not deserve to qualify for the World Cup because we could not pass the ball 5 or 6 times.”

He continued, “The players of the Egyptian national team are men and they fight, and I do not doubt this, but is the fight in football enough? So why don’t athletics players play football and win the World Cup?”

And he added, “Where are the Egyptian players from playing under pressure, passing continuously and acquiring the ball? The Egyptian players were terrified in the first 15 minutes. There is no technical courage on the field.”

The former Egypt striker explained:Queiroz He committed a crime in choosing Ramy Rabia, the Al-Ahly defender, to start the match, because he had not played internationally for a long time.

And he added: “And (My children’s life) I told Rabia that he will be injured during the first 20 minutes because he will not bear the pressure, especially since he played only 7 matches this season and did not participate mainly with Al-Ahly. It was a crime and a felony to start with.”

He concluded: “I swear to God, if Ahmed Sayed Zizou had participated in the first match, the Egyptian team would have scored the second goal. We have a coach who is too afraid and conservative, and if the Senegal team plays at this level in the World Cup, it will lose from all the teams.”

He added: “Senegal’s generation in 2002 is stronger than the current generation and 100 times better than it. Egypt missed the World Cup qualification.”
