It is often said that modern footballers don’t talk as much on the pitch as they ought to, and that mouthy team-mates in the Jamie Carragher mould are a dying breed. Egypt have solved the problem by ensuring that a healthy proportion of their defence is called Said.
What better way to relay messages across the defence? “Oi, Moawad! Ahmed Fathi Said push-up!”
