“I talked with the players to set new goals related to league records, we want to reach the largest number of points and goals,” El-Badry said during the post-match interview.

“The players also want to break these records, this is something that will be esteemed for the technical and administrative staff and for the players and it will be recorded with our names in history, and this is why it’s important,” he added.
