    We understand what you are saying Amr, and all of us want you to win the game and save some face for the nation before coming home. With that said, just shut up and play, i don’t think the country is in the mood to hear from any of you for a few weeks atleast. We love you and support you and we’ll pray and hope that you go to a big european league this year and hope all of you continue to have great success but for now just shut up and play, give us some time.
