Egypt international scored a late equaliser for Atromitos as they earned a crucial point after a 1-1 away draw with Asteras Tripolis.

The Egypt international, who was named as the best foreign player in Greece, has rejoined Atromitos last January on loan from PAOK after struggling for game time at the latter.

He scored his first goal for Atromitos last week when they beat Giannina 2-0, before putting his name on the scoresheet once again against Asteras Tripolis.

Asteras hosted Atromitos on Saturday and they took an early lead through Nikolaos Kaltsas, who put his side in front after 24 minutes after a scuffle inside the box.

The hosts looked like they will earn the full three points, however, Amr Warda’s late equaliser ensured a share of spoils.

In the 82nd minute, Warda rose above the Asteras defenders and headed in Javier Umbides’ corner, helping his side avoid a defeat.

This marks Warda’s third goal of the season across all competitions, as he scored for PAOK against Benfica in the UEFA Champions League, before netting twice for Atromitos.

Following the draw, Atromitos are currently fourth in the Greek Super League with 40 points, three behind third-placed AEK Athens, and eight away from the UEFA Champions League places.
