Ghazal returns in Nacional’s draw against Rio Ave

Posted on October 6, 2014

Aly Ghazal returns

Nacional de Madeira’s Egyptian defender played his first 90 minutes since returning from injury last night in his team’s draw against Rio Ave.

The Egyptian defender hasn’t featured for his side since scoring in CD Nacional’s 3-2 Europa League defeat to Dinamo Minsk, as he was facing a minor injury since returning from international duty with the Pharaohs.

Ghazal played 90 minutes in Nacional’s 0-0 draw with Ahmed Hassan Koka’s Rio Ave last night – as did compatriot – while Mahmoud Ezzat (injured) and Ali Fathy were left out.

The defensive midfielder tweeted on Monday: “Thank God for my first match after the injury. 90 minutes thankfully and a good performance.”

The 22-year-old was left out of Gharib’s national squad to face Botswana on the 10th of October, along with his team-mates Ezzat and Fathy.

This was the first time Aly Ghazal has been dropped by Gharib following a series of poor displays for the national team, where he has been used as a centre-back.

Ghazal will be hoping to get more playing time on the 19th of October when Nacional play Alcanenense.

Nacional currently lie in 16th place in the , just above the relegation zone.
