Mustafa Mansour

Summary
Mustafa Kamel Mansour (2 August 1914 – 24 July 2002) was an Egyptian footballer who played as a goalkeeper for Egypt at the 1934 FIFA World Cup. He is also notable for being one of the first non-British or Irish players to play in the Scottish leagues. Playing career Born in Cairo, Egypt, Mansour played for Cairo-based club Al Ahly in his native country, where his performances earned him a selection for the 1934 World Cup in Italy. He played in Egypt's only game at the tournament, a 4–2 defeat to Hungary in the first round in Naples. Mansour also played for Egypt at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin. Egypt's coach at the World Cup had been a Scotsman, James McCrae, and he may have influenced Mansour's decision to move to Scotland in 1936 to attend Jordanhill College alongside Mohamed Latif. While studying in Glasgow, Mansour appeared for the famous amateur side Queens Park, becoming their regular goalkeeper upon the retirement of Desmond White (future chairman of Celtic)
