Thank you for reading the news about Egypt’s handball player Islam Hassan retires internationally and now with the details
Dubai - Yasmine El Tohamy - Egypt’s and Al Ahly handball player Islam Hassan has announced his international retirement after a 14-year journey with the Pharaohs.
The 32-year-old centre back was among the Egypt squad in the 2021 World Championship, featuring three times in the competition.
He made his international debut back in 2009 and represented the Pharaohs in six World Cups as well as winning the 2016 African Championship and the gold medal at the 2013 Mediterranean Games.
However, Hassan has decided to call time on his journey with the national team, citing family reasons as one of the main motives.
“I have represented the national team for over 14 years and participated in six World Cup as well as playing in the Olympics and winning the African champion,”
This is the best time to announce my international retirement.
“I have four reasons, but I will reveal only two. The first one is that the constant presence in the international camps have had a negative impact on my family.
“And the second one is that I see that every player should retire at his top level,” he added.
Hassan currently plays for Al Ahly since 2016 and has had stints in Tunisia and Qatar, playing for AS Téboulba, Club African, and Al-Gharafa.
