Former Egypt U-20 striker Ahmed Fathi Bogy makes debut in… Algeria!
Former Egypt U-20 striker Ahmed Fathi Bogy made his debut in Algeria on Saturday, after joining CR Belouizdad earlier this month.
There seems to be a new trend of Egyptian players joining other North African leagues recently. Ahmed Abdel-Zaher, Ayman Hefny and Ahmed Eid joined Al-Ittihad, Al Ahly Tripoli and Al Ahly Benghazi of Libya respectively, while former Wigan hitman Amr Zaki joined Club World Cup runners-up Raja Casablanca of Morocco.
Joining them is 24-year-old Ahmed Fathi Mohamed, more commonly known as Bogy, who was unveiled by CR Belouizdad in Algeria earlier this month.
Ahmed Fathi Bogy, who signed an 18-month contract with the Algerian side, came on in the 63rd minute for his Belouizdad debut in a 3-2 loss to RC Arbaa.
The former Zamalek youth striker, who’s known for his brace in Egypt’s 4-2 win against Italy at the 2009 U-20 World Cup, was on trial in Norway with Tromsø IL just over a year ago, but left empty-handed before joining Iraqi club Talaba SC.
CR Belouizdad are currently sitting 13th place in the Algerian Ligue 1, just two points above the relegation zone.
