VIDEO: Elmohamady assists as Hull thrash Cardiff

Elmohamady assists Livermore

Egyptian wing-back Ahmed Elmohamady bagged an assist as Hull City thrashed relegation threatened Cardiff City 4-0 in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Egypt international Ahmed Elmohamady, who has started every Premier League game for Hull City so far this season, assisted Jake Livermore in the Tigers’ 4-0 win over Cardiff City on Saturday.

Tom Huddlestone opened the scoring for the Tigers in the 18th minute before record signing Nikica Jelavic scored a brace with a goal in each have.

To complete the romp, Jake Livermore curled it past Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall after Elmohamady’s free run down the right.

26-year-old Elmohamady has been recently recalled to the Egyptian national team by new coach Shawky Gharib ahead of the Pharaohs’ friendly against Bosnia next month.

The massive win sees Hull move up to 11th in the Premier League table, six points clear from the bottom three ahead of their match against Newcastle United next Saturday.

    Elmo has been brilliant for Hull City in recent games. His energy is incredible and I was staggered when Bradley dropped him from the Egyptian squad. He has been one of our top players this season.

      This video might shed some light on why Elmo was dropped: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njUMLu-KtiM) And this (www.kingfut.com/2013/12/16/bob-bradley-interview-american-coach-bids-farewell-to-egypt) …under the “Sour Grapes” section.

      Elmo’s always been the kind of player who needs continuity to produce his best. He can be a great club player especially under a coach who gives him the full 90mins in all games even when he underperforms. The national team is different b/c you come in to a new situation for a few days every 1-2 months and you have to remain confident to play your usual self when in fact, you could be playing much less time than you’d like and in a very different system.

      In fact, Bradley’s preferred system of play didn’t suit Elmo. We usually played a 4-man defense (where Fathi had undisputed precedence) with Salah on the right wing, and lacked a strong conventional striker most of the time so Elmo’s crosses wouldn’t have been very useful. Our attack under Bradley was mostly from the deep, or from fast wingers cutting inwards.
