Aswan rewards its players after qualifying for the Egyptian Cup semi-finals

The Board of Directors of the Aswan Club, headed by Major General Ahmed Suleiman, decided to pay a financial reward to the players and the technical staff after qualifying for the semi-finals of the Egypt Cup, following the victory over the Egyptian club in the quarter-final match by penalty shoot-out with a score of 5/4, in the meeting that brought the two teams together yesterday evening.

The financial crisis that Aswan Club is going through has prevented the team’s board of directors from paying an exceptional reward to the players, and the Aswan Council is working to provide new resources for the club after obtaining the right to use the club’s land.

For his part, Amr Al-Halawani, left-back of Aswan Club, revealed the scenes of his recording of the decisive penalty kick in the Aswan team's qualification to the semi-finals of the Egypt Cup after beating Al-Masry 5/4 with a penalty shootout.

Al-Halawani said in statements to "The Philosopher" on Radio On Sport FM: One of the good matches I played in my life was the Al-Masry match, especially that we were two goals behind and we tied, and this is wonderful, and Al-Masry is a great team. We have the match, and we must focus. "

He added: When we played the penalty kicks, I told Alaa Abdel-Al that I want to take the last kick because it will be decisive and we will go up with it, and I told the players, “You are not afraid and you will not pressure yourself even if you lose it.

He continued: This confidence was repeated with me in the set balls, and in the Mahalla match I told Ahmed Saghiri, my colleague, to stop it like this for the de Gaulle ball, and indeed I scored a goal.

He concluded: We are going according to the club's capabilities and Alaa Abdel-Al has made a unique combination of youth and experience. We need only 4 or 5 matches to ensure survival in the league, and all upcoming matches should be like cup matches for us, and I feel that we will remain in the league this season, I hope that We do something good for Aswan fans and make them happy.
