Egypt paid the price for wrong squad selection – Hossam Ashour

The Al Ahly captain believes the Pharaohs would have performed better at Afcon if some players weren’t left out of the final squad

Al Ahly captain Hossam Ashour believes Egypt wouldn’t have been eliminated so early from the Africa Cup of Nations if the right players were picked in the 23-man squad.

The Pharaohs were knocked out by South Africa in the Round of 16 after largely delivering disappointing performances as host nation.

Eyebrows were raised after Javier Aguirre’s squad for the finals was made known, with several critics claiming Ramadan Sobhi as well as Mohamed Hany ought to have been picked.
