"We play with a collective style and we are capable of containing any opponent."

The West Bromwich defender said he is happy with the Pharaohs results in the Group stage, adding he hopes his side keeps their winning rhythm in the Knock out stage.

"We have to be ready for the Knock out stage."

"We achieved good results in the Group stage and I hope that we keep this winning rhythm in order to win the title."
