U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he sought the help of Chinese President Xi Jinping in the case of three UCLA basketball players detained in China on suspicion of shoplifting last week, and said he hoped they could come home soon. “What they did was unfortunate,” Trump told reporters in Manila. He said the trio could have faced long prison sentences, and described Xi’s response as “terrific”. “They’re working on it right now.” Trump had raised the issue with Xi during a dinner held during the U.S. leader’s Nov. 8 to 10 state visit to Beijing. Trump was in the Philippines capital for a summit of Asian leaders. “We hope everything works out,” Trump said, adding that he hoped the players could come home soon. Asked about the trio and Trump’s discussing the issue with Xi, China Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a daily news briefing in Beijing: “Until now, I have not received any update, so I am unable to provide any further information”. He did not elaborate. The three basketball players from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) were detained by police on Nov. 7 in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou over allegations of shoplifting and were not on the team’s return flight to the United States on Saturday. According to a senior White House official, the players had so far been given relatively light treatment as a result of Trump’s intervention. “It’s in large part because the president brought it up,” the official told Reuters. The UCLA team had been in China for a game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai on Saturday, which UCLA won 63-60. The teams had traveled to Hangzhou earlier in the week to visit the headquarters of the game’s sponsor, Chinese tech giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. The three students - freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill - were taken in for questioning by police about alleged shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store during the Hangzhou visit. They were released early on Wednesday, but are barred from leaving China and confined to a luxury hotel in Hangzhou pending legal proceedings, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. More»

Egypt national football team stars Mohamed Salah and Ahmed Hegazi have been included in the “best 11” players list at the 2018 World Cup qualifiers released by the Confederation of the African Football (CAF) on Thursday. Liverpool winger Salah and West Bromwich defender Hegazi were part of Egypt's squad, and helped the Pharaohs to seal an early World Cup ticket after beating Congo 2-1 in a dramatic clash in Alexandria on 8 October, in which Salah scored a brace. Already-qualified Egypt meet Ghana away from home in their last Group E match on Sunday, having earned their ticket to next year's Russia finals with one game to spare. The Pharaohs are awaiting December's 2018 World Cup draw which will determine their opponents. The best 11 list also includes Tunisian winger Ali Maaloul, who plays for Egyptian side Ahly, as well as Uganda goalkeeper Denis Onyango, Senegal’s Sadio Mane and Nigeria’s Victor Moses. Best 11 players at the World Cup 2018 qualifiers: Goalkeeper: Denis Onyango (Uganda - Mamelodi Sundowns) Defenders: Serge Aurier (Ivory Coast - Tottenham Hotspur), Ahmed Hegazi (Egypt - West Bromwich Albion), Leon Balogun (Nigeria - FSV Mainz), Ali Maaloul (Tunisia - Ahly) Midfielders: Victor Moses (Nigeria - Chelsea), Sadio Mane (Senegal - Liverpool), Youssef Msakni (Tunisia - Lekhwiya), Mbark Boussoufa (Morocco - Al Jazira) Strikers: Khalid Boutaib (Morocco - Yeni Malatyaspor), Mohamed Salah (Egypt - Liverpool).

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp revealed that Mohamed Salah has asked Egypt coach Hector Cuper to be rested from the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Ghana next weekend. Klopp had previously said he wished his star man could take a breather, especially after a very intense month with international duties and club games. When asked by reporters on Friday if he talked to Cuper Klopp answered: “No, I didn’t speak to Egypt’s manager. Mo did it by himself. It was just common sense. They have already qualified for the World Cup." The Pharaohs have already secured their qualification to the 2018 World Cup following a 2-1 win over Congo last month courtesy to a heroic brace from Salah. The 25-year old winger has been initially included in Egypt's squad for Ghana game on 12 November in Accra but has been dropped later and replaced by Saudi-based winger Mahmoud "Shikbala" Abdel-Razeq. “I think they had planned two games, but one got cancelled so now it’s just one game. It’s a perfect situation for Mo. He can have this little break,” Klopp added. Salah, who is Liverpool's top scorer in all competitions with 10 goals, endured an intense start of the season as he has started 15 of the Reds 17 matches in all competitions so far and has been a permanent feature for Egypt during the World Cup qualifiers. He is still expected to play against West Ham on Saturday before enjoying his break. More»

Mohammed Salah will miss Egypt’s final World Cup qualifier against Ghana this month to focus on Liverpool’s domestic and European campaigns, the Egyptian soccer federation said Thursday. Egypt coach Hector Cuper has instead called up Mahmoud Abdel-Razeq, better known by his nickname Sheekabala, in Salah’s place. It is the first call up for the moody striker since 2014 and appears to be a reward for his impressive form this season at Saudi club al-Raed. The 31-year-old Sheekabala’s troubles on and off the field have reduced a player who once promised so much to a journeyman plagued by injuries while earning wages playing for clubs in Greece, Portugal, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt. Egypt has already qualified for the World Cup in Russia, finishing at the top of Group E ahead of Uganda, Ghana and the Republic of Congo. But the Nov. 12 match against Ghana could be a valuable test for how the team performs without Salah, who has five of the seven goals scored by the team and ensured qualification with a game to spare with a penalty strike in injury time against the Republic of Congo on Oct. 8. Cuper has been widely criticized in Egypt for his reliance on the Liverpool striker, with the media mockingly dubbing the Argentine’s strategy to be simply “pass it to Salah.” A win over Ghana without Salah could give the Pharaohs a much need boost, allowing other strikers, including Sheekabala, to shine. Salah could also use the rest. Liverpool is in sixth place in the Premier League with 16 points, nine adrift of leader Manchester City and only ahead of Burnley on goal difference. Its European campaign is going much better with Liverpool now at the top of its Champions League group after four matches. Egypt lost to Ghana 6-1 when the two last met in the west African nation, a defeat that wrecked Egypt’s chances of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. More»

Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Egypt's Mohamed Salah have made the 30-man shortlist for the African Player of the Year award as well as Naby Keita, who will join the club next summer. The Confederation of African Football revealed its shortlist on Wednesday but there is no place among the nominees for Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez, who won the prestigious award in 2016 after a fine year with Leicester. Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also been nominated for the award, along with Premier League stars Eric Bailly and Christian Atsu. ll but seven of the nominees play their football in Europe, with 44-year-old Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El Hadary being one of the stand-out inclusions. Veteran goalkeeper El Hadary currently plies his trade for Al-Taawoun in Saudi Arabia. Despite being named African Player of the Year in 2016, Mahrez is nowhere to be seen among the nominees this time round after failing to produce the form that saw him remarkably guide Leicester to the Premier League title in the 2015-16 season. The winner will be announced in the Ghanaian capital of Accra on January 4, 2018. The African Player of the Year will be determined by votes from a combination of managers and technical directors from national teams, as well as members of the Caf's Technical and Development Committee and a panel of media experts.

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.
