Egypt were nervous – Hassan

Egypt were nervous against South Africa – Ahmed Hassan

Posted: 6 June 2011 Time: 12:27 pm

Egypt skipper Ahmed Hassan says that pressure was the reason for Egypt’s disappointing draw against Bafana Bafana last night.

The Al Ahly ace took no part in the crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier as he has been suffering from a cruciate ligament injury he picked up in September against Sierra Leone.

Egypt’s failure to win for the fourth time in a row virtually ended their hopes of reaching the Nations Cup – for the first time ever.

While Egyptian fans are unhappy with the players, Hassan has defended his teammates on Filgoal.com.

“It was obvious that the players were nervous and this had an direct impact on the performance," he says.

“They felt under enormous pressure because victory was our only option, but I am sure that there was no carelessness.”

Egypt now need a miracle to qualify as second best runner-up, hoping that all groups’ results go in their favour.

Egypt is just becoming an average country , slowly but surely
Botswana plays more competitive games than you . You failed to qualify for 2010 WC and now it’s Africa nations Cup.
Just stop bringing the uprising because when you were playing for WC 2010 qualifying games there was never an uprising that time.

Just average team , with OR without their 57 yr old player Aboutrika

I have been saying for years that Egypt is just a overrated team in Africa bcos I have been watching them for some time and I believe that soon everyone will know that Egypt are overrated and they do not fit in the modern football of fairness and entertaining football. My teams best team has always been: Upcoming Ghana, Upcoming BAFANA and Nigeria, watch and learn soon this 3 teams will play a competitive football in the whole world, not taking anything away from other team especially the SADC teams. BUT BAFANA will definitely dominate SADC while we have other competitive teams in SADC.
