Zidan scores, assists four in Dortmund legend Dede tribute

Zidan visits

Ex-Egyptian international scored a goal and created four in a friendly honouring legend Dede.

Zidan, who is rumoured to return to playing football again with Egyptian Premier League club Entag El-Harby next season, was invited to the game which ended with a stunning 13-11 score.

Dede won two Bundesliga titles during a 13-year stint at Dortmund between 1998 and 2011. The retired Brazilian defender’s farewell appearance at the Signal Iduna Park saw ‘Dede’s National XI’, including the likes of Jens Lehmann and Torsten Frings, face off  ‘Dede’s World XI’.

33-year-old Mohamed Zidan helped his side ‘Dede’s World XI’ to a huge 13-goal victory over their opponents as he scored once and assisted on four occasions.

The game was officiated by Babak Rafati, who quit as a Bundesliga referee following his suicide attempt before a game in November 2011.

More than 80,000 football fans attended the testimonial to support the retired defender and watch their club legend once again.
