West Bromwich Albion: Fans praise Ahmed Hegazi after he keeps clean sheet for Egypt

West Bromwich Albion fans were left praising Ahmed Hegazi after his performance in Egypt’s win over Botswana last night.

Can West Brom win the Championship?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Hegazi formed part of the defence that saw the Pharaohs keep a clean sheet in a 1-0 win over their African rivals.

The 28-year-old is yet to make an appearance for the West Brom first-team this season as he still recovers from ankle surgery undertaken in the summer.

Given his absence, Kyle Bartley and summer signing Semi Ajayi have been playing in the centre of defence. It seems the partnership is working with the Baggies sitting top of the Championship table on goal difference after 11 games (via BBC).

However, Slaven Bilic’s side have kept just one clean sheet in 12 games in all competitions (via WhoScored).

After hearing of the result last night, fans heaped praise on their centre-half as they took to Twitter to react.

Here is a selection of tweets from the West Brom fans:

West Brom fans, should Hegazi return to the starting line up? Let us know your thoughts!
