SHEROUK SAYED ABDOU FARHAN – Wadi Degla Midfielder – Woman of The Match
“It’s not destined for us to qualify. We wanted to win, and we performed well but the result is not in our hands”.
“We were focused on our games not the other game played at the same time.
Wael El Sayed – Wadi Degla Coach
“I congratulate Hassacas’ coach on their qualification, they play very good football, and they deserve. The level here in the tournament can be compared to European levels”.
“We did not qualify from the last match, not this match, but we still tried our best till the last minute”.
“I anticipated that we would encounter a very difficult match. I remember their coach told me that this was going to be a very good game, which meant that they have studied us. I respect the Egyptian team because they played a very tactical game, but my players had the experience and determination required to qualify”.
“We did not start well in the first half. In the second half we tried to get hold of the ball and play. No matter how the opponent will have against my team, I always have a plan B”.
“I want to meet any of the teams of Group B. I’m ready for any of them, and I studied all of them”.
