Sobhi: A good performance is not enough; we want to win against Russia
In an interview with On Sport, Sobhi spoke about the team’s mentality ahead of the next tie against Russia and how focused they are on grabbing the three points.
“We know very well how important the game is, we are going there to win,” Ramadan Sobhi said.
“Our goal is not to have a good performance, but our focus is on winning and going all the way to the round of 16. The game will be very difficult but we are focused on achieving what we want.”
“The Russian team is certainly strong and managed to win by five goals, but our technical staff watched the game and will inform us of their weaknesses and strengths.”
“I saw the game and I believe that their strength is not in individual skills as much as it is in their teamwork.”
“Our goal is to honor Egypt and draw a smile on the faces of all the nation.”
Afterwards the 21-year-old shared a few thoughts on the game against Uruguay, where he was used as a substitute for Amr Warda in the second half.
“I expected Uruguay to be even stronger,”
“Yes, they are a strong team, but not as I expected, our team went neck and neck with them, but in the end we lost in the dying minutes and this is football.”
Egypt will face the hosts this Tuesday in decisive game, as a win is crucial for the Pharaohs if they are willing to continue their World Cup journey.
