Trezeguet is one of the pillars of Egypt's team. He is not the sort of wingers who raise eyebrows with catchy feints to carve out openings, but the midfield workhorse is one of the key players due to his impressive work rate.

He was instrumental in Egypt's Nations Cup campaign in 2017 in Gabon that saw the Pharaohs reach the final before losing to Cameroon 2-1. He was also a regular starter in Egypt's 2018 World Cup campaign.

Hassan, nicknamed Trezeguet after the former France striker, is the first choice as a left winger, given his pace and knack to make jinking runs into the area.

The 25-year-old enjoyed a fine season with Kasimpasa in Turkey, scoring nine goals and providing ten assists.

His displays have reportedly caught the eyes of several clubs such as Turkish giants Galatasaray and French side Lyon, who expressed an interest in signing him.
