      Maybe he doesnt even know him? Plus his Staff did not tell him because they concluded he was not up to the task when we played Senegal & Tunisia last year. As much as i admire his consistency with CD Nacional he has has to make a giant step forward before being considered again. Btw, Saleh Gomaa was also shining with them but messed up when it comes to playing with Egyptians 😛
