World Cup 2018: Egypt’s goalie rejects MOTM award

Egyptian keeper, Mohamed El-Shenawy, yesterday refused his Man-of-the-Match, MOTM, award against Uruguay because of his Muslim faith.


The MOTM award was sponsored by Budweiser which is an alcoholic beverage maker and due to Muslims practice of not taking alcohol, he rejected the award.

The award which is shaped like a red goblet clearly connotes what it is representing and El-Shenawy wanted no part of it, rejecting the award when it was presented to him yesterday.
