Q: What misses the national team to win the African championship and achieving first places in the international tournaments?!
A: the team possesses strong players and the best in the continent and most of them are under 23 years. But the African teams like Cameron, Kenya and Senegal, have professional players in the European leagues with high ages and expertise.

A: Sara Amin is an old friend for El-Ahly players as they played together in the national team. Sara is a strong and tough player and has experience and she’s the best player in Egypt in her position and will benefit the team in the coming tournaments.
