Amr Warda: Egypt will only settle for a win against Saudi Arabia
Egypt’s World Cup campaign took a massive hit when they lost 3-1 to Russia and their exit was confirmed when Saudi Arabia suffered a 1-0 defeat to Uruguay on Wednesday.
The Pharaohs still have a game left to play against Saudi Arabia as both teams have zero points after two games in Group A.
Warda has featured in Egypt’s World Cup games against Uruguay and Russia, starting the first match and coming on as a substitute in the second one respectively.
“All national team players dreamed of playing in the World Cup since they were young. We have worked really hard to get to where we are right now,” Warda told ON Sport.
“The traveling fans made us feel playing at home. We really wanted to make them proud but unfortunately we were not able to do that.
“I hope we improve in the future. We are now fully focused on our game against Saudi Arabia. We’ll not settle for anything other than a win against them,” he added.
The 24-year-old has also lifted the lid on his future, saying: “I will be looking at offers and decide my future after our game against Saudi Arabia.”
