Abdel Shafy was called to join the Egypt national football team on 31 December 2009.[2] In what was a surprise to some, the Egyptian team coach, Hassan Shehata, listed Abdel Shafy among the players heading to Angola for the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations. Abdel Shafy became a substitute for Sayed Moawad in this tournament, and managed to participate in 5 matches.[3] He grabbed his first goal for Egypt in the 4–0 semi-final win against Algeria.[4]

In May 2018 he was named in Egypt’s preliminary squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.[5]
