Abdel Sattar Sabry Abdelmajid Mahmoud (Arabic: عبدالستار صبري‎; born 19 June 1974), known as Sabry, is an Egyptian retired footballer who played as an attacking midfielder.

Club career[edit]

A skilled offensive player, Sabry was born in Cairo, and started playing with Al-Mokawloon al-Arab, moving abroad in 1997–98 to represent Austria's FC Tirol Innsbruck. He started 1999–2000 in the Greek League with PAOK FC, but switched in January 2000 to S.L. Benfica. In that season, he scored a last-minute free kick against Sporting Clube de Portugal, in a 1–0 away success that postponed Sporting's eventual championship victory.

Sabry would play in Portugal until May 2004, representing C.S. Marítimo (January 2002-June 2003) and C.F. Estrela da Amadora. He subsequently returned to his homeland, playing with ENPPI Club for a few months and joining El Geish shortly after, in the Egyptian Premier League.

Sabry ended his playing career in July 2010, at the age of 36. Subsequently, he joined El Geish's coaching staff.

International career[edit]

A prominent feature in the Egyptian national team in the mid-late 90's, Sabry made his debut against Angola in 1995.

He was part of the gold medal-winning side in the 1995 All-Africa Games, and featured in the 1998 Africa Cup of Nations squad which finished champion in Burkina Faso, winning 70 full caps in only six years of international play and scoring 11 goals.[1][2]
