On the other hand, Queiroz settled with goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary, the captain of Al-Ahly club, Mohamed El-Shennawy, goalkeeper of the Red Team and the first national football team. This came after the goalkeeper returned to his good level and regained a large part of his focus in the Sun Downs match that took place last Saturday, and he tackled more than one difficult ball, despite the loss with a goal without a response from the owners of the land. The team has suffered from instability during the recent period due to the lack of expected and distinguished performance by the goalkeepers of the first football team of the Red Castle, especially after the decline in the performance of other goalkeepers.
