Even though it’s just a friendly match in preparation for the World Cup, Egyptians are still hyped nonetheless about the fact that their National Team will face-off against Portugal. This is mainly because luck hasn’t been our friend for over 28 years, and because Magdy Abd Elghany will finally (and hopefully) stop whining about his one and only goal.

What makes this match even more extraordinary is that it will see two of the most fabled football players of our time: our beloved Egyptian player Mo Salah and the Portuguese player Cristiano Ronaldo, playing head-to-head. We have no idea what to expect, but it is going to be a spectacle to watch. We didn’t want to take sides, but unfortunately we’re all dying to see Mohamed Salah kick everyone’s BU***.
