Born in Cairo, Abdelghani was a first-team mainstay for several years at local Al-Ahly, before immigrating to Portugal in 1988 at the age of 29, signing with lowly S.C. Beira-Mar which he helped always maintain its first division status whilst averaging four goals per season, even though he appeared sparingly in his last year.
Abdelghani gained 50 caps for Egypt, representing the nation at the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy and scoring its only goal of the tournament, a penalty in the 1–1 group stage draw against the Netherlands.
