EFA: Blanco won’t be of use to the national team
Osama Nabih, a member of Egypt’s coaching staff, has played down SC Barcelona forward Ismael Blanco’s chances of joining the national team.
Argentina-born Ismael Blanco has been in top form in Ecuador this season, scoring 5 goals in 8 appearances, leading Barcelona to the third place in Serie A.
“We have been following Blanco for two years but the problem was that he doesn’t have a Egyptian passport or ID and doesn’t have any papers to prove his Egyptian nationality,” Nabih said.
“The player is now 31, and by the time we finish taking all the necessary procedures he will have turned 35, so he won’t be beneficial to the team.” Nabih added.
