Egypt El-Shenawy has a very promising future – England goalkeeping coach


Three Lions’ goalkeeping coach Martyn Margetson praises Egypt’s El-Shenawy saying his stunning display against Uruguay during World Cup 2018 drew his attention.

July 15, 2018 was a special day for Pharaohs’ shot-stopper Mohamed El-Shenawy. The 31-year-old completed save-after-save to win the game’s man of the match award.

Even though he was spectator on a late Jose Gimenez header, he kept at bay Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani several times.

However, Martyn Margetson kept what El-Shenawy did good despite Pharaohs’ 0-1 defeat.

“El-Shennawy drew my attention to the level he presented against Uruguay, and I think that his age is small for a goalkeeper, and he has a very promising future.” he said on a report of KingFut.

Undisputed Man Of The Match, Mohamed El-Shenawy refused to take his Budweiser award because it is alcoholic, in respect to his religion.
