Ahmed Nagy, the Egyptian National Team goalkeepers’ coach, believes that is Egypt’s number one goalkeeper.

“At the moment, El-Shennawy is number one in Egypt. He played in most of the recent games and showed his brilliant quality” said Nagy in a televised interview on Tuesday.

El-Shennawy is facing tough competition for his position from the likes of Sherif Ekramy, Aly Lotfy and Egypt’s great; Essam el-Hadary.

“The biggest proof of the superiority of El-Shennawy is that he participated as a starter in most of Egypt’s recent games, and his astounding display.” he added.

“The recent glitches in his performances with Zamalek didn’t really affect his level of play.” he concluded.

Shennawy was in the starting line-up against Nigeria in the African Cup of Nations, where he produced a brilliant display, granting Egypt a well deserved clean sheet.
