      He’s an Egyptian player born and raised in Denmark and is also known as Amir Adel. He played with Egypt U20 a few years back when Rabea Yasin was the coach. Looked a lot of talent back then, but I’m not sure what happened

        Mohamed Zidan a failure ? A man that played almost all his career in Europe scoring a bunch of goals for teams such as Dortmund, Bremen and Mainz is a failure ? This guy got his name written all over the 2008 AFCON championship that we won. Its not because he retired 31 and wasted a year or two of football at top level that he is a failure. A true failure would be a guy like Zaki, Ghaly, Saleh Gomaa, etc. Not Mohamed Zidan
