Floriana sign Egyptian striker

Floriana continued to strengthen their squad with the signing of Egyptian striker Mohamed El Yamani. The news was announced by the club’s official website www.florianafc.com

The twenty-nine year old striker played for a number of years in Belgium for Standard Liege and then KV Mechelen before returning to Egypt in 2004. The player was reportedly attracting the interest of Juventus at one point but a car accident ruled out his chances around a decade ago.

El Yamani played twice for the Egyptian national team and was a member of the team which placed third in the FIFA Under-20 World Cup finals in 2001 where he also scored four goals.
