Al Masry manager Hossam Hassan spoke about his side’s encounter with Nigeria’s Ifeanyi Ubah, which his side won on Sunday.

Al Masry qualified to the Confederation Cup round of 32 after beating the Nigerian club on penalties after drawing 1-1 on aggregate.

“Al Masry haven’t qualified to the African competitions for 15 years, this team don’t have any African experience, but have ambition and we won’t change our game-play style,” Hossam Hassan told ONsport.

“They [Ifeanyi Ubah] were a tough opponent, they have ambition and their chairman wanted to present them in a unique way in Africa, they believe in sorcery and this is normal in Africa.

“In Africa, people are kind and believe in sorcery, but at the end what is written by God will happen.

“My target was to please the fans and represent the Egyptian football in a good way. We take every match on its own, our target was to qualify, then we will see what will happen as the tournament has strong clubs”, The former Zamalek manager concluded.

The Greens Eagles’ next game will be against 18th-placed El-Sharkia in the Egyptian Premier League on Friday, February 24 at Borg El-Arab Stadium.
