Egypt's opposite attacker Hisham Ewais serves
  Cairo, Egypt, August 22, 2017- Egypt's opposite attacker Hisham Ewais is considered one of the most prominent stars at the ongoing FIVB Men's U23 World Championship held in Cairo Stadium Complex in Egypt, being one of the competition best scorers and the honour of the competition best scoring performance so far with 29 points against Cuba. 

The number of points is considered a record under the new scoring system currently being tested: a best-of-seven, 15-point set format.

 Hisham is one of the players who have got a lot of popularity between the Egyptian fans as he is playing in the same position of the Egyptian legend Ahmed Salah who is considered the best ever star in the history of Egyptian volleyball.

 He emerged as one of the best opposite attackers since he was selected for the first time to the Egyptian U19 team 5 years age. He continued to be a key role in all age groups until he played for both U21 and U23 Egyptian teams in the same year 2015. 

 Hisham was then nominated to the Egyptian senior team for the first time in 2017 to play in the World League in his county's squad, before he carries now the hope of the Egyptians at the 2017 Men's U23 World Championship for the second time in a row in their homelands.  

"We need to beat Poland on Wednesday to secure a second round ticket for the first time this age category," says the promising Egyptian star. "We feel now how our fans get our trust and we need them to support us for achieving our goals."

 Ewais is considered a repeated copy for the Egyptian legend Ahmed Salah who won more than 10 times in his career the MVP Award. Now he is future star for the Pharos in the near future.
