Kahraba hopes to reconcile fans with a victory over Arab rivals

Fri, Jun. 22, 2018
CAIRO – 22 June 2018: Egypt winger, Mahmoud Abdelmonem, who is also known as Kahraba, believes that the national team players still have the chance to make an impact at the World Cup when they face Saudi Arabia at their last game of the competition.

“We will do everything we can to achieve victory over Saudi Arabia. It is the toughest game of the group against an Arab rival,” Kahraba told ON Sport on Friday.





Kahraba plays since 2016 at Saudi Arabian club, Al-Ittihad, on loan from Zamalek and he knows the Saudi Arabian players well.




The winger added: “They have a great team with extraordinary individuals and we hope to defeat them and achieve the first Egyptian victory at the history of the competition.”

Egyptian fans, who watched their national team at the World Cup for the first time since 1990, found themselves out of the competition after losing the first two games at the group.

Egypt lost 1-0 to Uruguay while they lost the second game 3-1 to the host nation, Russia.




Kahraba added: “The relation between the players is great and we are all hoping for the best for each other. We had a dream to achieve something at the World Cup but we were unlucky.”

Egypt faces Saudi Arabia on Monday at their last game at the World Cup.
