“Ramadan Sobhi is the Egyptian Neymar” -Stoke Fans
LAST night was Ramadan Sobhi’s full debut for Stoke City – so how about his full Premier League debut against West Bromwich Albion this Saturday?
It’s a big call, most would say an unlikely one, but by no means impossible after last night’s impressing showing in the League Cup against Hull.
In a game of ultimately few positives, the 19 year-old Egyptian winger emerged with more credit than most from Stoke’s 2-1 defeat.
Here is some tweets after the match from Stoke City’s fans:
Sobhi is the Egyptian Neymar ???#tekkers

There's one positive to take from that – Ramadan Sobhi looks a fantastic talent #SCFC

It would be a big call to gamble on his fledgling talents this weekend, especially in such a potentially monumental game for manager and team, but not as big a call as it once was.
And there will be a few thousand Ramadan fans back home in Egypt with some advice for Mark Hughes.
