    Why is Bassem Morsi in there, the man hasn’t scored in 6 months. And hefty, what’s he done???It’s all because the assistants of cuper support Zamalek. PLUS WHERE IS EL NENNY AND SALEH GOMAA?!?!!!!!????!! CUPER IS YET TO RELEASE A DECENT SQUAD SINCE COMING TO EGYPT!

      Stop being a biased Ahlawy cunt and you might have a chance to understand that this squad is local only and that he is doing what he can at the moment with the whole league (including Ahly and Zamalek) playing bad football.

      Hefny is having an okay season. Not much in terms of players in his position having a good season in the league this year. You have a problem with Morsy not scoring for 6 months ( its actually 4), but you dont have problem with Amr Gamal making the squad while the last time he scored was 12….TWELVE….ETNASHAR months ago. Gomaa is injured, but you are too busy being a biased crying cunt to know that despite ironically Gomaa playing for the team you are biased for.

    saleh gomaa has been injured and abroad players are not concerned as theses matches are initially not a part of the FIFA agenda.
