El-Hadary: I apologise to Egyptian fans
Egypt’s national team failed to collect a single point at the 2018 FIFA World Cup after suffering their third successive defeat at the hands of Saudi Arabia.
Mohamed Salah scored first for Hector Cuper’s men before Salman El-Faraj equalised for Saudi Arabia from the spot and Salem El-Dawsari squander Egypt’s hopes in gaining at least one point with a winner at the death.
“Thank God for everything. This is football. I apologise to the Egyptian people for our results in the World Cup as well as my teammates in the national team,” El-Hadary told beIN Sports.
“We conceded a goal in the last moments in the first and second half, unfortunately this is football.”
Despite the bitter defeat, El-Hadary made history with his appearance against Saudi Arabia as he became the oldest player to ever feature in the World Cup, at the age of 45.

“This title is for entire Egypt and not El-Hadary solely. I hope that I maintain it forever.”
