His performances earned him a call to the Egyptian national team by legendary Hassan Shehata to join the team’s pursuit of their third consecutive continental title in 2010.

After playing a total of 173 minutes in Angola, in which he scored five goals earning him both the golden boot and the discovery player of the tournament award, he was bound to attract the prying eyes of the top two teams in Egypt: Al-Ahly and Zamalek.

After a tug-of-war between the Cairo giants over his signature, which caused an eruption in the Egyptian media, Al-Ahly controversially signed Egypt’s AFCON hero.

In Cairo, Geddo managed to score 23 goals in 95 games, guiding them to two league titles, two Egypt Super Cups, two CAF Super Cup, two CAF Champions Leagues, and the CAF Confederation Cup.

He most famously scored and assisted in the 2012 CAF Champions League final as well as spending a memorable loan spell at English club Hull City.
