Elneny: Result was the most important thing against Ghana
Egypt and Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny gave his opinion about the match against Ghana, stressing that the result was more important than performance.
Egypt won 2-0 against Ghana in the second round of the 2018 World Cup qualifications last Sunday, but their performance did not impress many of the Egyptian football fans.
“We played in a realistic way against Ghana, The result was important for us, more important than the performance,’’ Elneny said in televised comments to DMC Channel.
“Hector Cúper makes us play in a defensive way that makes it difficult for any team to score against us. In training, eight attackers go against three defenders and they fail to score so you can imagine what happens when we are six defenders in the match.’’ Elneny continued.
“In general, I think Ghana was stronger than Nigeria’s team which we faced in the AFCON qualifications.’’
“Cúper guided Egypt to qualify to AFCON and also we are in a good position in the World Cup qualifications, The results are very good in my opinion,’’ Elneny concluded.
