Palestinians Abroad: Ramzi Saleh Awarded Player of the Month in Egypt
Ramzi Saleh has been awarded with the Player of the Month award for the month of March. The Al-Ahly keeper but in some impressive performances filling in for out of form Amir AbdelHamid. Saleh's first start (2/26/2009) ended in a 1-0 loss to Ismaily but he quickly followed made up for that helping Al-Ahly go on a run of six games undefeated in Egyptian and African play including shutouts against Tanzania's Young Africans (3-0, 1-0) en route to round of sixteen. Domestically, Ramzi Saleh's form has lifted Al-Ahly to draws against Asyut Petroleum (2-2) and Ittihad Al-Shourta (0-0) and wins against Olympic (0-3) and Ittihad Alexandria (2-1).
