Hassan Ahmed El-Shazly (Arabic: حسن الشاذلي‎; 13 November 1943 – 20 April 2015[1]) was an Egyptian footballer. El-Shazly is considered as a historic player of Tersana. He was described as a "devastating shooter" and "lethal with both feet".[2]


El-Shazly played club football for the Egyptian team Tersana. He led Tersana to its only Egyptian League title in the 1963 season. He was the Egyptian Premier League top goalscorer for four times.[3] As of 2010, this is an Egyptian record that still holds. He scored 34 goals as the top league scorer of 1974-75 Egyptian premier league, a one-season record that still stands. This was done at a relative old age; he was 34 years old.[2]

He also represented the Egypt national football team, and scored six goals at the 1963 African Cup of Nations.[4]
