VIDEO: Adam El-Abd’s performance in Egypt’s 3-0 win over Congo

Adam El-Abd won his second cap for Egypt on Friday as the Treika-inspired Pharaohs eased to a 3-0 victory over Congo in Sharjah.

Mohamed Abou-Treika, retained his place with the national team after a meeting earlier this month with Bob Bradley, despite serving a two-month ban by Al-Ahly for refusing to participate in the controversial Egypt Super Cup.

Abou-Treika wore the captain’s armband and paid his dues with a brace and provided Gedo’s goal (Egypt’s 2nd); all within 5 minutes before half-time.

Brighton’s Adam El-Abd replaced Hossam Ghaly at half-time to partner young Fiorentina centre-back Ahmed Hegazy in the heart of defense and produced a rock solid performance to help protect the Pharaohs’ three-goal lead.

The Albion defender also combined well on the right flank with fellow Championship-based Pharaoh, Hull City’s Ahmed Elmohamady.

El-Abd would often shift over to the right to cover for ‘Elmo’, who was also impressive, as he continuously soared down the right-wing.

Egypt next play North African rivals Tunisia on Tuesday to conclude the camp in Dubai.

Egypt’s line-up was the following:

Sherif Ekramy – Ahmed Fathi (Elmohamady), Hossam Ghaly (Adam El-Abd), Ahmed Hegazy, Mohamed Abdel-Shafy – Hosni Abd-Rabo (Saleh Gomaa), Hossam Ashour (El-Nenny),  Mohamed Abou-TreikaMohamed Salah – Ahmed Hassan Mekki (Mohamed Ibrahim), Gedo (Ahmed Temsah)
