Digital content creator Ahmed El-Ghandour, the host and producer of the popular educational YouTube show Al-Daheeh, has launched a new show called El-Kora ma’ El-Salama (Football, Bye Bye).



The first episode of the new show was released on Saturday evening on the Al-Daheeh YouTube channel.

The episode is set in a replica of a television studio with El-Ghandour portraying a number of roles including media personality Salama Abdel-Malik, Captain Gamal Abu Sayed, Hajj Mohammed Al-Wakil, the owner of the channel, and Dr. Bashir Mahfouz, the inventor of a time machine with whom the viewers travel to many famous World Cups.

The first episode focuses on the history of football in Brazil, with  Dr. Mahfouz explaining the socio-political backdrop of the games in the 20th century. He also focuses on Brazilian football players who made history, such as Pelé and Anderson.
