Gamal Hamza (Arabic: جمال حمزة‎) (born 5 December 1981 in Cairo, Egypt) is an Egyptian football striker. He currently plays for the Egyptian Premier League side El Gouna FC.

Career[edit]

Zamalek[edit]

Hamza is a Zamalek youth academy graduate, and is considered one of the best Egyptian forwards. He is one of the highest scoring players in Cairo Derby against Al-Ahly with eight goals.[citation needed] He is known for once having sported a reverse-Mohawk haircut, which he has since abandoned.

On 14 May 2009, Hamza signed a pre-contract with the Swiss club FC Luzern. However, no agreement between Luzern and Hamza's club Al Zamalek came about.

Mainz[edit]

On 24 June 2009, Hamza signed with the German side 1. FSV Mainz 05 on a 2+1 basis,[1] and was on 11 October 2009 released from his contract.

El Gouna FC[edit]

Having destroyed any hope of a possible comeback to former club Zamalek by choosing their bitter rivals Ahly over them, Hamza returned to former club El Gouna and made a good impression by scoring three goals in the league's first four matches. After a dispute with the technical staff, Hamza was completely excluded from all of the club's matches for the remainder of the first half of the season and a decision was reached to sell him in the winter transfer window.

International career[edit]

Hamza played in the World Youth Cup U20 Argentina in 2001 and holds 18 games, scoring four goals for the A-team.[2] He plays for the Egyptian football team[3]
