Ramzy provides update on Kouka’s injury, reveals plans for 2019 AFCON
The Egypt national team have managed to qualify for the 2019 AFCON following their 2-0 win over eSwatini and Tunisia’s victory over Niger.
The Pharaohs will take part in the AFCON for the 24th time in their history, and Ramzy spoke about the opponents they faced in the qualifiers.
“The competitors were not as tough to cause us problems but of course we respect our opponents,” Hany Ramzy told ONsport.
“Football is not about the names or the history of the players, but about the 90 minutes on the field. We managed to put up good performances which have helped us qualify for the 2019 AFCON,” he added.
Regarding Mohamed Salah’s absence against eSwatini due to his injury, Hany Ramzy revealed he had trust in all of the 27 squad players, saying that all players have performed well that you couldn’t feel Salah’s absence.
“The result came after a very professional preparation plan. We had only four days to work, so we had to focus more on the technical side,” Ramzy said.
“There is a data for every player that is regularly updated, following a specific program that shows its final result and the heat maps for every player after each game,” he added.
Ramzy has revealed that all the team’s focus now will be on Tunisia’s clash, as they are eyeing the top spot of the table.
“After Tunisia’s match, we will have a long-term from November to March, in which we will start focusing on the friendly games to discover new young talents,” Ramzy concluded.
During the eSwatini meeting, Ahmed Hassan Kouka was subbed-off for injury and Hany Ramzy has cleared that he probably sprained his hamstring and further tests will let us know more.
