Moustafa Kamel Mansour was a goalkeeper with Al-Ahly. He played for Egypt in the 1934 World Cup in Italy and suffered a broken nose in the game against Hungary. After the Olympic Games, he moved to Scotland to works towards a diploma in physical education at Jordan Hill Training College in Glasgow. Although offered the sum of £5,000 to turn professional, he signed instead for Queen’s Park, the only amateur club in the Scottish professional leagues. Between 1936 and 1939, he played in nearly 50 first-class league matches and eight Cup ties.

On the outbreak of war in 1939 Mansour returned to Egypt. He continued his involvement with football after his playing career had ended, becoming an international referee, managing his former club Al-Ahly and serving as secretary-general of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) between 1958 and 1961 and holding high ranking positions within Egyptian football. He also served as a minister in the Egyptian government.
