And the football league for players under 23, with the exception of 3 over this age, did not attract many stars, due to the busy schedule and the launch after the European Cup and the “Copa America”.

Egyptian national coach Shawky Gharib deployed a squad in which he relied on goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shennawy, defenders Ahmed Hegazy and Mahmoud Hamdi “Al-Wensh” and striker Ramadan Sobhi.

On the other hand, Spain pushed 6 players from the last European Cup, reached the semi-finals and went on to take penalties against champions Italy, most notably young Barcelona midfielder Pedri.

Spain controlled the ball relatively early in the game without threatening El-Shennawy’s goal.

But it was hit by two blows in the first half after Barcelona defender Oscar Mingiza and midfielder Dani Ceballos, who hit the post in the 27th minute, were injured.

In the second half, the Spanish side seemed closer to the goal, but El-Shennawy defended his goal skillfully.

El-Shennawy became the second Egyptian goalkeeper to participate in the World Cup and Olympics, following Mustafa Kamel Mansour in the 1934 World Cup and the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

And she later plays in the same group, Argentina, the 2004 and 2008 champions and the fourth Australia in 1992.
