Goalkeeper: Ahmed El-Shenawy (Masry) produced a string of heroic saves that helped Masry keep a clean sheet against a battling Ghazl El-Mahalla team.

Right back: Ahmed Sobhy (ENPPI) delivered a solid performance at the backline, but also accomplished his offensive tasks to perfection after scoring his team’s third goal from an individual effort.

Central defender:  Wael Gomaa (Ahly) was the maestro of the Reds’ backline, leading the new back-four formation to contain Haras El-Hodoud’s offensive threat.

Central defender: Eliassou Issiaka (Masry) put Ghazl El-Mahalla striker Reda Metwalli under strict surveillance, giving him no space to move inside the box.

Left back: Fouad Salama (Masr Maqassa) has been a key element in Maqassa’s win against newly-promoted side Bani Sueif Telephones, producing a strong performance at the back and also scoring the third goal to kill any comeback hopes for their visitors.

Midfielder: Amer Sabry (Talae Al-Gaish) has been inspirational for his team, scoring the equaliser against Arab Contractors before Ernest Papa Arko scores the winner and making a huge effort in midfield to maintain his team’s supremacy until the end of the game.

Midfielder: Adel Mostafa (ENPPI) set up Ahmed Abdel-Zaher to score the his team’s first goal and himself scored the second a few minutes later.
