Mohamed Abdel-Shafy Said Abouzid (Arabic: محمد عبد الشافي‎; born on 1 July 1985) is an Egyptian footballer who plays as a left-back for Al-Ahli and the Egypt national team.

Club career[edit]

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-Shafy was called to join the Egypt national football team on 31 December 2009.[2] 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.[3] He grabbed his first goal for Egypt in the 4–0 semi-final win against Algeria.[4]

In May 2018 he was named in Egypt’s preliminary squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.[5]
