Assessments of the Pharaohs

They are into yet another Continental Final but we have to look at the shape of the team.
Without any doubt, Mohamed Salah is a great asset,El Hadary is top class but one would expect Elneny and Ramadan Sobhi to be more instrumental since they are playing the Premier League with Arsenal and Stoke City Respectively but they were not really involved in the success thus far with Coach Hector Cuper relying on defensive stability,compactness and team solidarity because of the small attacking options more reason why they have only conceded one goal in Competition.
They simply sit back and absorb pressure and were assisted by the poor finishing of opposing teams.

Four Goals in the championship thus far with two of it from Mohamed Salah and one each by El Said and Kharaba through set pieces,Counter Attacks and two of it came with few minutes left against Uganda and Morocco who both dominated proceedings.
Just like what happened in Kaduna last year when Super Eagles conceded a stoppage time equalizer Even though they were in control for long.
Ghana had larger portion of ball possession before Harrison Afful committed an unnecessary penalty in Cairo last November in a World Cup Qualifier which the Pharaohs won 2-0.
But fact still remain that the Stallions of Burkina Faso,Senegal,Ghana,Nigeria will do well against Europeans and South Americans than Egypt because those teams only need little or no space to put the ball inside the net because of the quality of Attackers in their teams.
Finally,Egypt will always excel because of their team organization as most of the players are always home based with few outside the country.
