Mohamed Barakat ( ) (born November 20, 1976) is an Egyptian footballer. Barakat plays the offensive right wing for Egypt's Al-Ahly and the Egyptian National Team. He is a right-footed attacking midfielder and playmaker. He is considered by many as one of the most talented players in Africa nowadays. Barakat's hallmarks are surging runs from midfield which often disrupt opposing defences as well as a box-to-box work ethic which makes him an important figure both in defence and attack. Thanks to his noticeable achievements and talent , his fans have given him the nickname "Blessings , The Mercurial" ( ) . He reached his peak in 2005 and 2006, helping his club Al-Ahly to win the CAF Champions League 2005 and CAF Champions League 2006 and Egypt win their fifth African Cup of Nations Egypt 2006. However, in 2006 his career was marred by a long spell of injuries.
