He started his career with Zamalek youth team then moved to ENPPI then moved to Ghazl El-Mehalla. He joined Zamalek's squad again in 2009.

International career[edit]

Abdel-Safhy was called to join the Egypt national football team on 31 December 2009.[1] In what was a surprise to some, the Egyptian team coach, Hassan Shehata, listed Abdel-Shafy among the players heading to Angola for the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations. Abdel-Shafy became a substitute for Sayed Moawad in this tournament, and managed to participate in 5 matches.[2] He grabbed his first goal for Egypt in the 4–0 semi-final win against Algeria.[3]
