Military National Team

As the Egyptian National Team prepares to start their campaign at AFCON 2017, the Military National Team began their road in the World Military Cup with a draw against Poland. 

The Military Team started the game with El-Hany Soliman; Essam Salah, Salah Soliman, Mahmoud Hamdy, Ragab Bakar; Ahmed Tawfik, Hossam Ashour; Ahmed Eid Abdelmalak, Momen Zakaria; Amr Gamal, Amr Marey.

Egypt had many chances in the beginning of the match with Essam Salah and Ahmed Eid Abdelmalak going closest. El-Hany Soliman made an important save on a header from a Poland player.

Both Momen Zakaria and Ahmed Tawfik went close towards the end of the first half, but the first half ended 0-0.

A minute into the second half, Poland scored their first goal.

Shortly after, Ahmed El Sheikh was introduced in place of Ahmed Eid and Hossam Paulo in place of Amr Marey. In the 69th minute, El Sheikh scored Egypt’s first goal from a free kick.

The match ended with a 1-1 draw. Egypt will play Canada next on January 19.
