Ramadan Galak - Missed Goal with Magdi Abdelghani

Magdi Abdelghani Sayed Ahmed (born 27 July 1959; Arabic مجدي عبد الغني سيد أحمد), known as Abdelghani, is an Egyptian retired footballer who played as an attacking midfielder.


He played most of his professional career, which spanned nearly 15 years, with Al-Ahly and Beira-Mar.

Abdelghani represented Egypt at the 1990 World Cup.

Club career

Born in Cairo, Abdelghani was a first-team mainstay for several years at local Al-Ahly, before immigrating to Portugal in 1988 at the age of 29, signing with lowly S.C. Beira-Mar which he helped always maintain its first division status whilst averaging four goals per season, even though he appeared sparingly in his last year.

Abdelghani finished his career back in his country, first with El-Masry then Al-Mokawloon al-Arab. In 1987, he finished fourth in the race for African Footballer of the Year.

International career

Abdelghani gained 50 caps for Egypt, representing the nation at the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy and scoring its only goal of the tournament, a penalty in the 1–1 group stage draw against the Netherlands.

He also competed at the 1984 Summer Olympics, and helped the Pharaohs win the 1986 African Cup of Nations on home soil.
