Magdi Abdelghani Sayed Ahmed (born 27 July 1959 in Cairo; Arabic مجدي عبد الغني), known as Abdelghani, is a former Egyptian footballer, who played as an attacking midfielder.


Football career

Abdelghani was a first-team mainstay for several years at local Al-Ahly, before immigrating to Portugal in 1988, aged 29, signing with lowly S.C. Beira-Mar, which he helped always maintain its first division status, averaging four goals per season, even though he appeared sparingly in his last year.

Abdelghani finished his career back in his country, first with El-Masry then Al-Mokawloon al-Arab; in 1987, he finished fourth in the race for African Footballer of the Year.[1]

International career

Abdelghani gained more than 90 caps for Egypt, representing the nation at the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy, and scoring their only goal of the tournament, a penalty in the 1–1 draw with Holland.

He also competed at the 1988 Summer Olympics,[2] and helped the Pharaons win the 1986 African Cup of Nations, on home soil.
