Amr Warda posts emotional apology to all Egyptians after loss to Saudi Arabia
Egypt harrowingly lost their last Group stage match to Saudi Arabia 2-1 on Monday in Volgograd Stadium, finishing off a a very unlucky campaign.
The pharaohs qualified for World Cup 2018 in Russia ending an almost 30 year drought from the competition.
Unfortunately, they were unable to record a single win in their three group stage matches and managed to score only two goals, all thanks to their star player Mohamed Salah.
Egypt were able to take the lead through Salah but Salman Al-Faraj scored late in the first half through a penalty and Salem Al-Dawsari volleyed home from close range in the 95th minute to give Saudi Arabia their third win in the FIFA World Cup.
Egypt Midfielder Amr Warda took to Twitter and Instagram to post an emotional apology to all the Egyptians who were left heartbroken.
“I apologize to every single person that had hoped for us to achieve more than this. I am sorry that we didn’t make your dreams come true or make you happy. I apologize to the people who came [to Russia] to cheer for us and raise Egypt’s flag high. I apologize to every single one of you. But I promise you all, that we will not stop working on ourselves until we make you proud,” he wrote.
