An official source in the Egyptian Football Association revealed that Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz has excluded the duo Mohamed Sherif and Mohamed Magdy Afsha from the Al-Ahly club, who is preparing to face Libya in two matches next week, which sparked a state of controversy.
According to the source, the reason for excluding “Afsha and Sharif” from the list is that the coach is not convinced of the capabilities of the duo and the need to choose only 23 players for the upcoming confrontation against Libya in the upcoming World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifiers, as Queiroz believes that Mustafa Mohamed will be more useful to the team than Mohamed Sharif. Likewise, Abdullah Al-Saeed will be more useful than Muhammad Majdi Afsha.
In this regard, the Egyptian fans began to attack the Portuguese coach, after the decision to exclude the duo Mohamed Magdy Afsha and Mohamed Sharif from the list of the team that will play the Libya match in a few days, stressing that the duo is among the best players in the Egyptian League, so how can they be excluded from that The fateful match.
Some fans commented, wondering how to let a player like “Mohamed Sharif” score two goals against Liberia in the friendly match that was held yesterday?
It is worth noting that the Egyptian team had achieved its first victory under the leadership of Carlos Queiroz, according to the Liberian team, in the match that was held at the Burj Al Arab Stadium on Thursday evening.
