CAIRO: Zamalek goalkeeper Abdel-Wahed Al-Sayed might be part of Egypt s roster for the crucial World Cup qualifier at home to Algeria, goalkeeping coach Ahmed Soliman said on Sunday.

Al-Sayed pulled off a string of impressive saves to help Zamalek claim a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Military Production in the Egyptian Premier League on Saturday.

The 32-year-old, who used to be Zamalek s regular guardian before sustaining an injury in the league opener, regained his place between the sticks after his understudy Mohamed Abdel-Monsef made a dreadful mistake in last week s 1-1 draw with Gouna.

He denied promoted Production plenty of clear-cut opportunities in the second half.

I was very happy that he produced such a great performance. He could earn an Egypt call-up for the Algeria clash, Soliman told FilGoal.com.

Egyptian goalkeepers have been doing great since the Egyptian Football Association took a decision to prohibit clubs from signing foreign guardians.

Ismaili s Essam Al-Hadari, who is widely regarded as the best keeper in Egypt s history, is the team s undisputed number one.

The Pharaohs coach Hassan Shehata relies on Ittihad s Al-Hani Soliman and Mansoura s Mahmoud Aboul-Saoud as back-ups.

Egypt, who last qualified for the World Cup in 1990, need to beat Algeria by a three-goal margin on Nov. 14 at Cairo Stadium to ensure their progress to next year s South Africa finals.

A victory by a two-goal margin will set up a playoff meeting with the Desert Foxes.
