The 23-year-old man with an amputated foot was able to challenge his handicap and play football till he became a professional player. He, with other people suffering from the same injury, established a miracle team to be able to achieve great success until the young man received professional football offers abroad.

Abdulati said: “My name is Abdullah Mustafa Abdulati. I am 23 years old and was born in Ashmoun province, Menoufia Governorate. The thing I love the most is football. I felt happy when I found people like me playing football. I thought I was alone!. We gathered and formed a team called (Team of Miracles). My role in the track is to play as a play maker and an attacker; Spearhead. I recognized foreign coaches in this game, and thankfully, they said I am a professional player. They demanded videos for me and showed their extreme admiration for me too. I hope to be the best in this game. Three coaches asked me to play with them abroad. I will think about choosing the appropriate team, God willing.”
