Bradley confirms Zaki to start against Ghana
In a press conference, Bradley praised Zaki for his attitude at the camp saying: “Each time he comes to the camp he shows signs of progress. He has made a lot of improvement lately and he will be leading our frontline against Ghana.”
He then goes on to explain why Zaki didn’t feature in the away leg: “I thought we could have introduced him at later stages of the game but things didn’t turn out as expected and we had to make different substitutions.”
Apart from Zaki, the American hinted that he is still undecided on who will be between the sticks for Egypt saying that Ahmed El-Shennawy will start if he “follows his guts”.
He then says the ability of Ekramy, who is the regular starter for the national team, to overcome some physical problems he had with his club and El-Shennawy’s lack of action of the past year will affect his decision.
Egypt face Ghana on the 19th of November at the Air Defense stadium in Cairo after beating Zambia a few days ago 2-0, thanks to goals from Zaki and Rabia.
