Egypt striker Mohamed Zidan opened the scoring but the visitors lost the game 3-1.
Shehata said: “It was a serious game. An open game and we gave a good performance.
“The English team were successful in the second half. The second goal was offside but the referee was fair in the match.
“It was our first match since the African Nations Cup and we are preparing our team for a new system and a new style. We missed some chances which could have changed the result.
“Our changes were not as good for us as the England team’s were. Also we have come from the African Nations Cup and our players were exhausted.”
