VIDEO: Gedo header forced over the line in Hull City Reserves win
Gedo’s header led to Hull City Reserves’ third goal in a 3-0 win against Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park on Tuesday.
Egypt international Mohamed Nagy ‘Gedo’, who has been recalled to the Egypt squad to face Ghana this month, appeared to have scored for Hull City Reserves in a 3-0 win against Scunthorpe United in the Central League East Division on Tuesday, but his goal-bound header was forced over the line by Aaron McLean and Ben Clappison.
Dougie Wilson opened the scoring for Stephen Clemence’s developmental side in the ninth minute before, Aaron Mclean doubled the lead before half time and Clappison finished off the scoring just after the hour mark – although Gedo’s header would likely have crossed the line without the extra touch.
Gedo, who turned last week 29, came off the bench for the Tigers in the 81st minute as they lost on penalties against Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One Cup at White Hart Lane. His penalty beat Friedel before fellow Egyptian compatriot Ahmed Elmohamady missed the decisive kick to send Spurs through to the quarter-finals.
The Egyptian striker has yet to make his English Premier League debut since re-joining from Cairo giants Al-Ahly on transfer deadline day. Gedo regularly features for the reserves as he bids for full fitness after recently recovering from an ankle injury.
Gedo, who was also on loan at the KC Stadium last season, hit five goals in his first five starts for the club to boost the Tigers’ promotion drive.
