Egypt World Cup Squad

Recommended Posts

Reading up on the Egypt squad and came across this:

Mahmoud Hassan, known as 'Trezeguet' due to his resemblance to the former France striker, will be eager to show that there is more to Egypt than Mohamed Salah. 

What a cock.

For naming himself after a player that has....

Won the World Cup

Scored the winning goal at The Euros

Won multiple Serie A titles

Won the French Division One on multiple occasions

Been in the UEFA Team of the Year

Won the Serie A Footballer of the Year

Won the Serie A Foreign Footballer of the Year

Been Serie A Top Goalscorer

And made the Juventus Greatest XI of All Time.

... When he's won nothing. Literally the equivalent of me telling people I play goals with to call me Thierry from now on.

Apparently in Egypt when they have players with very common names, they give them new nicknames so that they can tell them apart. Mido of Tottenham Hotspur fame was one of those players a few years ago. This guy has been dubbed Trezeguet apparently because he looks a bit like David Trezeguet. My understanding is that it's not a nickname he's bestowed upon himself but I might be wrong.
