Osama Nabih: Chad developed, criticizes Ramadan Sobhy
Egypt national team assistant coach Osama Nabih talked about the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Chad, and the Sobhy incident in the Super Cup match earlier this month.
“Over the past two months, Chad’s performance has notably changed,” said Nabih, in televised comments.
Egypt will face Chad in the second round of 2018 World Cup qualification. The first leg will be played in Chad on the 14th of November, and the second leg is scheduled to be played in Egypt on the 17th of the same month.
“The manager, the goalkeeper, the defence; many things has been changed since last time we encountered them. It won’t be easy,” he added.
“Their administration staff is also thinking ahead. They chose to play us in Chad on 14th of November and they did not let us know that they had booked their flight to Egypt immediately after the game. We did not find flight tickets in the same day after the game and as a result, they will arrive in Egypt before us,” he resumed.
“Some small mistakes occurred from young players. We know there was pressure as the fans were attending the game, but when the same mistake happens for the second time, we must stop and discuss with [Sobhy] because we are all partners. We reflect Egypt’s reputation abroad,” he said, referring to Ramadan Sobhy’s incident, when he again stood on the ball in the derby.
“Our goal is clear; we want to qualify to the next World Cup in Russia.” Nabih concluded.
