Zamalek will host Ahly in their Egyptian Premier League derby on 8 January at Cairo Stadium for the first time in over three years, the Egyptian Football association (EFA) stated on Monday. "Security authorities have approved Zamalek's hosting all of their home games at Cairo Stadium instead of at PetroSport," read a statement by the association. The Cairo Derby was last held in the 74,100-seat venue during the Egypt Super Cup final on 14 September 2014, in which Ahly won 5-4 with a penalty shootout. Most Ahly and Zamalek games have been held away from home turf since the 2012 football tragedy in which over 70 Ahly fans were killed after being attacked by rival Masry supporters following a match in Port Said. Fans are still barred from attending domestic league games due to security concerns. More»

Egypt's Ahly failed to take a first-leg advantage despite their territorial dominance, throwing away their lead to settle for a 1-1 draw at home to Morocco's Wydad Casablanca in the African Champions League final on Saturday. An early sublime volley from Moemen Zakareya ensured Ahly made a perfect start to the match at Alexandria's Borg El-Arab Stadium, similar to the one they had en route to a memorable 6-2 thrashing of Tunisia's Etoile du Sahel in the second leg of the semi final. However, a glancing header from forward Achraf Bencharki, one of the night's best formers, gave Wydad an equaliser and, more importantly, a precious away goal which could come in handy when both sides meet in the second leg next Saturday in Casablanca. The one-time winners defended in numbers in the second half, thwarting a wave of Ahly attempts to avoid the fate of Etoile, who paid a heavy price for their bold approach. Ahly, who are eyeing a record-extending ninth triumph, will have to score on the road if they are to win their first title since 2013. Ahly took the game to Wydad from the very beginning and, just like the home clash against Etoile, opened the scoring as early as the third minute following a spectacular effort from Zakareya. The winger, consistently praised for his lethal finishing, flicked a pass from Abdallah El-Said with his right foot and sent an unstoppable volley with his left from the edge of the area, leaving Wydad keeper Zouheir Laaroubi with no chance. Walid Azaro, who silenced his critics with a hat-trick in the demolition of Etoile, could have made it 2-0 four minutes later when he burst clear, only to fire high over with the goal at his mercy, prompting murmurs of discontent from the home fans who are still not convinced the Moroccan striker is the man to spearhead Ahly's attack. Ahly played some flowing football and looked capable of doubling their advantage but they were taken by surprise following a swift Wydad move which resulted in an equaliser in the 17th minute. Mohamed Ounajem, Wydad's lively playmaker, made a darting run down the right and whipped in an inviting cross for Bencharki, who got ahead of central defender Saad Samir to send a glancing header into the corner of the net. The equaliser looked to have dampened the spirit of Ahly, who struggled to break down the defensive-minded hosts for the remainder of the first half, although Nigerian forward Junior Ajayi wasted a good chance when he miscued a free header following a right-wing cross. But Wydad lost Ounajem, their primary source of creativity, to injury in the 27th minute. He was replaced with Abdeladim Khadrouf. Ahly laid siege to Wydad's area in the second half, launching a wave of attacks although clear-cut chances were scarce. However, Ahly had a penalty claim waved away when Azaro was caught by a high-foot challenge from Badr Gaddarin on the hour mark. Wydad defended stoutly in the latter stages, restricting Ahly to some half-chances as the Red Devils sent some deep long balls to Azaro and Ajayi, although neither took advantage. Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry introduced winger Walid Soliman to inject zeal but he was injured with five minutes remaining, making way for veteran striker Emad Meteb. Meteb had the second half's best chance when his low shot from the edge of the area went just wide deep in stoppage time. More»

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah could never be accused of forgetting his roots. The mayor of Nagrig, the village in Egypt’s Gharbiya province where Salah grew up, has revealed the extent to which the 25-year-old is giving back to his community. Maher Shetia said: “Salah highlighted his small village on the international map. He also built a charity and will build a school that costs millions. “This is in addition to his donations to Basioun hospital with a complete ventilation room, incubations and an ambulance unit.” After Salah’s ice-cool penalty earlier this month sealed Egypt’s place at the 2018 World Cup, the governor of Gharbiya renamed Salah’s former school in Basioun ‘Mohamed Salah Industrial High School’. A rich businessman offered Salah a luxury villa as a token of his appreciation for his heroics against Congo, but the player asked him to make a donation to his home village instead. Family and friends of the former Chelsea wideman have been speaking to China’s Xinhua News Agency about Salah’s childhood in Nagrig. His father Salah Ghaly was key to helping him on the road to stardom. Salah was snapped up by El Mokawloon in Cairo as a teenager and it was there that his performances attracted the attention of Swiss club Basel, who brought him to Europe in 2012. “His soccer talent appeared when he was young, so his father adopted it, took care of him, paid for his trips to other clubs outside the district until Salah rose as a star,” said his uncle Zaki Abdel-Fattah Ghali. “Salah has a strong will and his mind is faster than his feet.” His cousin Abadah Saeed Ghali says fame hasn’t changed Salah, who has plundered nine goals for Liverpool since his club record £36.9million summer move from Roma. “Salah comes to the village when possible and walks among the people and takes photos with them so modestly,” he said. “All Egyptians, not only those of Nagrig or Gharbiya province, are proud of him.” Karim Saber, a 15-year-boy with Salah’s name on the back of his shirt, backed that up as he added: “We all adore Mohamed Salah. “I met Salah here before and took a picture with him near my school. He is so modest and respectful and he socialises with us as an ordinary person despite his fame. “For us, Salah is a role model and we like to imitate his skills when we play football.” Reda Masoud was Salah’s PE teacher at Nagrig Elementary School and always believed he was a special talent. “He won two tournaments with our school soccer team at the level of the province. He drew attention due to his distinguished talent as well as skillfulness, speed and good manners,” he said. The knock-on effect of Salah’s success is that parents in rural villages like Nagrig now pay much more attention to football and helping their children maximise their potential. “My son watches no TV channels but football,” said Mohamed Abdel-Aziz, whose 10-year-old is a trainee at the Reda Zerir Academy. Salah in his inspiration. More»

Moroccan under-fire striker Walid Azaro silenced his critics in style, scoring a hat-trick as Ahly on Sunday hammered Tunisia's Etoile du Sahel 6-2 to reach their first African Champions League final since 2013. Roared on by their passionate crowd at Alexandria's Borg El-Arab Stadium, Ahly, trailing 2-1 from the first-leg, opened the scoring as early as the second minute via a cunningly floated free-kick from Tunisian left-back Ali Maaloul. Azaro, a summer arrival who has come in for fierce criticism from Ahly fans for being profligate in recent Egyptian league games, scored with two carbon-copy headers to give his side a 3-0 halftime lead. He completed his hat-trick with a simple finish early in the second half but Etoile were briefly given a lifeline when Rami Bedoui pulled one back shortly after, leaving the visitors needing two more goals to qualify on the away goal rule. However, Ahly ran roughshod over their opponents with a fortuitous own goal from Hamdi Nagguez and a blistering shot from central defender Rami Rabia to go 6-1 up before Iheb Msakni netted a stoppage-time consolation for Etoile. Ahly advanced to the final with a 7-4 aggregate win to close on a record-extending ninth title. They meet Wydad Casablanca in the final after the Moroccans beat USM Alger 3-1 on Saturday. Wydad and Ahly met twice in the group stage, each winning their home match. The final first-leg takes place next weekend in Alexandria, with Wydad hosting the return in Casablanca one week later.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has won the UEFA best player poll of the third round of Europe’s Champions League. Salah garnered 51 percent of the vote, followed by the Turkish team Besiktas’s Cenk Tosun with 33 percent, and Spartak Moscow’s Quincy Promes with seven percent. Lionel Messi came forth with four percent and Christiano Ronaldo sixth with two percent. Salah also won the best player poll in the first round of the Champions League. Salah led Liverpool to a 7-0 win over Sylvania’s Maribor, causing the Reds to go top of Champions League Group E. Salah scored two goals during the match and made a third in Liverpool’s historic win.

Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah scored a double and assisted another goal to help The Reds to a thumping 7-0 away victory at Slovenia’s Maribor in the UEFA Champions League group stage on Tuesday. Salah made his first contribution of the night when he squared for forward Firmino at the far post to make it one-nil in as early as the fourth minute. The Egypt ace was then involved in the build-up of his side’s second, sliding the ball into the box for James Milner who set up Coutinho on 13 minutes. With Liverpool posing threat whenever they go forward, Salah made sure his side became 3-0 up, finishing coolly past the keeper from inside the six-yard box following Firmino’s through ball. It wasn’t the end of the Egyptian’s contributions though, still finding the net just five minutes from time following a squared ball into the area from full-back Alberto Moreno from the left. Salah, however, was substituted 12 minutes after the restart, ending the 25-year-old's exploits of the night, but Liverpool were to continue to score. Firmino added a well-deserved second after finishing from Coutinho's fierce cross with a deft header in the 54th minute. Substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, with his first Liverpool goal, and Trent Alexander-Arnold completed the rout in the closing stages as the visitors registered their biggest win under manager Juergen Klopp. Liverpool have five points after three games to lead Group E from Spartak Moscow on goal difference, while Spanish side Sevilla sit one point adrift in third. Maribor have one point. More»

FIFA has sent a formal letter to Egyptian football club Zamalek ordering its management to immediately pay the team's former Brazilian player Ricardo Alves Fernandes all his fees or the team may lose points in the domestic league. "Zamalek has not acted in accordance with the Arbitral Award passed by the court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on 20 September 2016," the world governing body said in its letter. "This would appear to be a violation of Article 64 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code, and as such it will be the subject of an investigation by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee. "We are therefore opening disciplinary proceedings against the club Zamalek FC in respect of a violation of article 64 of the FDC ... Disciplinary measures (fine, deduction of points, relegation to a lower league) may be imposed on the club." FIFA said that Zamalek should pay Fernandes the following outstanding amounts and send a copy of proof of payment: - $63,220 and EGP 11,400 as outstanding remuneration plus 5 percent interest to be calculated in accordance with the decision passed by the dispute Resolution Chamber on 10 April 2015. - $425,000 as compensation for breach of contract plus 5 percent interest to be calculated in accordance with the decision passed by the dispute Resolution Chamber on 10 April 2015. - CHF 4,000 as a contribution towards legal fees and other expenses incurred in connection with the arbitration proceedings. FIFA said that Zamalek should pay all outstanding amounts by 26 October 2017 at the latest and send copies of proof of the payment by the same deadline. More»

Zamalek's stuttering start to the Egyptian Premier League continued after they were held to a 1-1 draw away to Tanta, who equalized with a controversial penalty in an incident-packed game on Friday. Tanta wasted a first-half penalty awarded for an apparent foul committed by Zamalek's Syrian full-back Moayad Ajan, although television replays showed there was a minimal contact between the Syrian full-back and Tanta's Mohamed Gaber. Zamalek's keeper Ahmed El-Shennawi saved the resulting penalty and the visitors then squandered several goal-scoring chances until debutant Salah Ashour ended Tanta's resistance with a 64th-minute volley. However, Tanta were given another dubious penalty nine minutes later when Hammada El-Ghannam went down under the slightest of challenges from right-back Ahmed Tawfik. Striker Gaber dispatched the spot-kick and Zamalek's late efforts to score a precious winner were in vain, with Tanta squandering a golden chance to snatch a stunning win in stoppage time. Zamalek's angry players harangued the referee following the final whistle, with the club then announcing it would withdraw from the league competition unless the Egyptian Football Association's board members stepped down. The stalemate, Zamalek's third draw in five matches, saw them slip to fifth in the table with nine points, four behind leaders Masry. Tanta are ninth on six points. Zamalek striker Bassem Morsi, who fell out with Egypt coach Bassem Morsi last year but recently said he was eager to return to the team's fold following their qualification for the World Cup, looked determined to open his account this season but was guilty of wasting three clear-cut chances in the first half. He sent a free header high over early on and had another header on 32 minutes denied by the bar. He was also sent clean on goal three minutes before the break following a through pass from deep-lying forward Salah Ashour, a summer arrival who made his first appearance, but his poorly-hit effort struck the legs of the Tanta keeper. The woodwork also came to Tanta's rescue late in the first half when defender Mahmoud Alaa's low shot following a goal-mouth scramble hit the post. For all Zamalek's dominance, they could have fallen behind midway through the first half when Tanta were awarded a penalty after Mohamed Gaber fell following the slightest of contacts with Moayad Ajan. However, goalkeeper Ahmed El-Shennawi dived the right way to save Mohamed Asaad's spot-kick. Zamalek broke the deadlock in the 64th minute when winger Abdallah Gomaa skipped past his challenger and rushed to the byline before pulling the ball back to Ashour, who neatly flicked it before firing a volley into the corner of the net. But Gaber restored parity in the 72nd minute when he shot his penalty straight down the middle, with El-Shennawi diving to his right. Zamalek pressed forward in the dying stages but they were almost caught out in stoppage time when El-Shennawi produced a superb reflex save to thwart Gaber in a one-on-one situation. More»

The Egyptian national team’s assistant coach Usama Nabih has revealed that his side would prefer to face Brazil in the group stage of the World Cup rather than Germany or Spain. "Brazil plays open football that would allow us to use empty spaces in the field to make counter attacks, but Germany or Spain are more organised tactically," Nabih told an Egyptian sports show on Tuesday. The Pharaohs, same as Brazil, Spain and Germany, have earned qualification for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, after Mohamed Salah's double against Congo, ending a 28-year absence from the international competition. "The ability to qualify for the next stage of the World Cup depends on the group opponents the draw will reveal on 1 December," Nabih added. Under the helm of Argentinean tactician Hector Cuper, Egypt will choose opponents to meet in friendlies ahead of the world’s most prestigious football tournament, in accordance with the draw results. The African giants will end the qualifiers by playing against Ghana away in Akra in a meaningless game after they topped group E with 12 points, four before second-placed Uganda, with only one game remaining.

Egypt will be seeking to progress beyond the group stage when they make their third World Cup appearance at the Russia finals next year, its coach Hector Cuper said. "We are looking to qualify for the second round [round of 16] and pass the group stage," the 61-year-old said in an interview with ONSport TV late on Monday. The Pharaohs sealed their World Cup ticket with one match to spare in Group E after beating Congo 2-1 in a dramatic clash in Alexandria on Sunday, thanks to a brace from star winger Mohamed Salah including a stoppage-time penalty. The Russia finals will be Egypt's first World Cup appearance since 1990. "Everything could happen in football as long as the final whistle off the match is not blown," Cuper added, recalling a memory from a high-profile game that had inspired him. "Back in 1999, Manchester United dominated the game for the full 90 minutes against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final but the German team was able to score twice in stoppage time. Since then,  I've learned that everything is possible in football. "This is what I thought about after the Congo goal; that we must react to the shock. We did exactly that," he concluded. Egypt gained an unassailable four-point lead over Uganda at the top of Group E with one match remaining. Topping group E of the African qualifiers, Egypt insured the qualification with 12 points, four ahead of second-placed Uganda with only one match remaining for each. They face Ghana in a meaningless match away from home in their final World Cup qualifier next month. More»
