We must restore pride against Ghana – El-Sayed

Posted on October 24, 2013

’s assistant coach has admitted to the difficulty of overturning a five-goal deficit against Ghana in next month’s World Cup play-off, but says the players will only need to restore their pride after suffering a humiliating 6-1 loss in the first leg.

The Pharaohs were outclassed in a night to forget in Kumasi, almost shattering their dream of reaching the World Cup for the first time since 1990.

“We are looking to restore pride in the second leg,” El-Sayed, the assistant of American boss Bob Bradley, said in a television interview on Wednesday.

“We cannot ask the players to score five goals in the second leg. We asked them to play football and restore pride after the humiliating defeat,” he added.

Egypt host the Black Stars on 19 November at the army-owned Air Defence Stadium in Cairo. Up to 30,000 supporters will be allowed to attend the match.

    Yeah keep up the hope..I like that…Don’t forget theres no way pharaohs can prevent Ghana from scoring at least 2 goals in return leg..The only way to restore pride is to let prevail in the whole of Egypt and stop the bloodshed…That is not cool at all..We Ghanaians love and respect Egypt but I personally have lost all respect for Egypt when I see childrens arms and legs blown off! WTF YO???
    Ghana 5-2 Egypt

      Egypt is land of peace on earth and not like Ghana, Ivory coast and Nigeria, lands of terror.

        Please,please,please this kind of rude attitude must stop! What at all motivates some of u guys to go to someone’s site to show off what u can do? In honest we invaded Zambia thru Zamfoot to teach them how to insult n cast insinuations.U want to take it to Egypt to? Pls show some respect to our fellow Africans and more importantly, that we Ghanaians are peaceful,sober,kind and frown on such disgusting,uncluttered behavior you guyz are portraying Ghana to be!

          And who are you??? Where were you when egyptians flocked gsn to insult and degrade we black Africans…Where were you when they came to ghanasoccernet to call us all kinds of degrading names??? some of the rude egyptians even went as far as saying they do not consider themselves to be Africans because they are more affiliated with europe…They told us that egyptians standard of living was wayyy better than any African country and how blacks are monkeys and baboons!… And you want us to be quiet?? no way brother….You seem like a typical ass kissing Ghanaian…certainly not me…If any oyibo or arabo insults any African,I surelly will put them in their place..mtcheeeeewwww!

    @Kwame Nkrumah-You are a true Ghanaian soldier…well to honestly answer your question about how many goals we will be scoring this time:> Heres the breakdown…the Ayew brothers still owe us 2 hat tricks or at least 2 goals each…then depending on how we feel,we can either proceed with the DEMOLITION PROJECT of the Pharaohs and all the Pyramids or we can choose to be nice to them and leave them with Ghana 6-0 Egypt…
    We shall be bringing BULLDOZERS with us for this project as well because these egyptians are making too much noise about the pharaohs and pyramids….we must level them to ground ASAP.
    Oh Yes ,EGYPTIANS smoke a lot of HASHISH in order for them to think they can deny Mighty Ghana a place @Brazil..
    November 19:> New scoreline> Ghana 18-1 Egypt

    Lol respect needs to come from both sides, but honestly as an Egyptian its hilarious that some Ghanaians think they’re top shit now. Like calm down bud, we probably won’t overturn the deficit at home but we can definitely make you shit your pants for 90 minutes. Ghanson is just an example of an insecure african with an inferiority complex.
