Egypt and Pyramids FC international playmaker Abdallah El-Said celebrated in style his centurion club award after netting a hat-trick against Tanta 3-0 on Monday in their Egyptian Premier League return.

The gifted player scored twice from the spot on 49 and 58 minutes before completing his hat-trick with a close range finish at the hour-mark.

The 35-year-old international was awarded a trophy by the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) head Amr El-Ganainy and received a guard of honour by both teams before the game.

"I am happy with the achievement, the reward and the records of course. But what is important that we won today and continue winning. We are still competing in the league, Cup and African Confederation Cup. This club has been built to win titles and I hope that we will do so," he said after the game.


El-Said has levelled his tally to 107 goals over 15 seasons playing for Ismaily, Ahly and Pyramids FC to edge past Ahly's iconic playmaker Mohamed Abou Treika (106 goals).

The Pharaohs' maestro has netted his 100th goal against Ittihad of Alexandria in January to become the ninth player to reach the century goal-mark in the Egyptian Premier League history.

Late Tersana and Egypt frontman Hassan El-Shazly top the list with 173 goals, followed by Hossam Hassan (168), El-Sayed El-Dhizui (127), Mostafa Riyad (122), Mahmoud El-Khatib (109), Abdallah El-Said (107), Ahmed El-Kas (107), Mohamed Abu Treika (106) and Gamal Abdel-Hamid (101).

El-Said has also extended his lead at the top of the scorers' list with 16 goals in 18 games.

The victory takes Pyramids FC temporarily to the second place with 35 points just one ahead of Zamalek who met Ittihad of Alexandria later on Monday.
