And despite facing a lot of criticism, Aguirre has defended Marwan, saying the Al Ahly forward was one of Egypt’s best players in the World Cup.

“I do not think Egypt is suffering from an attacking problem. We scored 15 goals in four games. If we had scored one or two goals in four games, I would have admitted there is a problem,” Aguirre told ONSport.

“We scored three goals against Tunisia and that is not easy. There is no problem with the Egyptian forwards.

“At the 2018 World Cup, I did not know that I would coach Egypt, but I saw an extraordinary performance from Marwan Mohsen and he was one of the best players for Egypt during the tournament.

“Marwan Mohsen is Egypt’s best striker and I am not speaking about scoring goals, watch the Uruguay game and how he received all the balls sent to him successfully.

    I dont know what Aguirre saw at the World Cup. Marwan Mohsen was very very bad in the World Cup and among the badest players in the national team. And I am sure that we have better strikers than him. Even Ahmed Hassan Koka is better than him. Marwan Mohsen should not be nominated again. But in Egypt the national Trainer has no chance to choose his players completely free.
