Viborg midfielder has stated that he dreamed about the call up for a long time after he was included among the foreign-based players summoned for the Togo friendly.

Jakobsen, who is set to represent Egypt for the first time, was a member in the Egypt U-20 squad that took on the African championship in 2013.

“It is a huge honour [the Egypt call] and something that I dreamed about for a long time. I will continue to work hard and develop as a footballer,” Jakobsen told Viborg FF official website.

“This is certainly a step in the right direction for me. I am really looking forward but right now I have to focus on my team’s game against Aab Aalborg on Sunday,” he concluded.

The Denmark-born midfielder made his move to Viborg in the preceding January transfer market, taking part in three games with the Danish side so far and scoring one goal.
