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»

Governor of Gharbia, General Ahmed Daif Saqr, announced that the alma mater of Egyptian football player Muhammad Salah, Basyoun Industrial Secondary School, will be re-named after the athlete as a tribute. In addition to Industrial, General Sakr informed the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education in Gharbia, Ayed al-Shenawy, that two more schools in Basyoun and Mahalla cities would be re-named immediately after Egypt qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cub in Russia. Thousands of people all over Gharbia celebrated the win against the Congolese football team 2-1, on Sunday, qualifying Egypt for the World Cup. President Sisi received the players and the coaching team this morning in the Ittihadeya Presidential Palace and rewarded each player of the national football team LE1.5 million. The seven-time continental champions and 2016 CAF Africa Cup of Nations runner-ups have only made it to the World Cup finals twice, both games hosted by Italy, the first time being in 1934 and the second in 1990.

Mohamed Salah proved Egypt's hero, scoring twice including a last-gasp penalty to send the Pharaohs to their first World Cup finals since 1990 following a 2-1 home win over Congo in a dramatic and nerve-jangling clash on Sunday. More than 80,000 supporters at Alexandria's Borg El-Arab erupted into ecstasy when Salah broke the deadlock three minutes past the hour mark as Egypt looked close to realizing a long-held dream, having made the last of their two World Cup appearances 27 years ago in Italy. However, the atmosphere was subdued and many fans shed tears when Congo's Arnold Bouka equalized with a half-volley after a defensive lapse with three minutes remaining. With the clock ticking down in stoppage time and a victory desperately required, Salah invoked memories of Emad Meteb's famous last-gasp header against Algeria in 2009 when he sent the keeper the wrong way from the spot after substitute Mahmoud Trezeguet was hauled down in the area. After years of underachievement on the international level, Egypt were finally given something to cheer about after reaching next year's Russia finals with one match to spare in Group E. They remained on top of the group with 12 points, gaining an unassailable four-point lead over Uganda. They face Ghana next month in a meaningless match in Kumasi. The sell-out crowd in Alexandria remained glued to their seats following the final whistle, watching joyous scenes on the pitch as Salah was engulfed by ecstatic teammates. More»

It has never been that close for World Cup-hungry Egypt to qualify for football's most prestigious showpiece. The Pharaohs lost in two playoffs in the qualifying campaigns of the previous two editions but Russia 2018 comes calling this year after Ghana played out a 0-0 draw at Uganda in a controversial match on Saturday where several decisive refereeing decisions went against the Black Stars. The stalemate means Egypt will book a World Cup spot for the first time in almost three decades with one match to spare in Group E if they beat Congo in Alexandria on Sunday. Egypt lead the group with nine points and should they overcome Congo, they will gain an unassailable four-point lead over nearest challengers Uganda before facing Ghana away from home in the final round next month. Many stars of the current Egypt side were not even born when the national team made the last of their two World Cup appearances in 1990 in Italy. Since then, there have been some near-misses and heartbreaking stories for the seven-time African champions, including a controversial decision to replay a qualifier against Zimbabwe in 1993 and a couple of costly missed chances in front of an open goal in the 2002 qualifiers. Egypt also looked on the brink of ending their barren run in 2009 and 2013, only to lose to Algeria and Ghana in two playoffs respectively. The latter loss was particularly painful, with Egypt suffering a humiliating 7-3 aggregate defeat by a mighty Ghana side. The bold tactics of then coach Bob Bradley was mainly blamed by fans for the fiasco but his successor, Argentinean boss Hector Cuper, is much more cautious. The former Inter Milan and Valencia coach sometimes comes under fire for what many deem his overly-defensive strategies but his game plans have also proved effective to a large extent, with Egypt reaching the African Nations Cup final early this year, only to lose to Cameroon in the final. Fans often make jokes over Egypt and Cuper's repeated stumbles at the last hurdle, with the veteran coach losing two successive Champions League finals while at Valencia and the Italian Serie A on the final day of the season while at Inter Milan, but it's the perfect time for both to lay their ghosts to rest. "The challenge is stressful, of course. I am taking hypertension medicine due the stress I suffer from the continuing criticism. Life is full of stress, but the challenge of reaching the World Cup is the toughest stress I have faced," Cuper said ahead of the Congo match. Egypt are expected to be roared on by over 70,000 supporters at the country's biggest stadium - Borg El-Arab venue in Alexandria They are firm favourites to down a Congo side who have only gained one point in four matches from a surprise draw away to Ghana. "Congo is a good team combining players with great individual skill, but we are ready for the game," Cuper confidently said. "We have studied Congo well. We will be focusing on their weak points." Egypt will have to do without key playmaker Abdallah El-Said, who often combines well with Liverpool's in-form forward Mohamed Salah to unlock opposing backlines, due to injury. He is likely to be replaced by Ahly's Saleh Gomaa. Defensive midfielder Hossam Ashour and winger Mostafa Fathi, who usually play bit-part roles, were also ruled out of the game because of injuries. There was also an injury scare for Saudi Arabia-based winger Mahmoud Kahraba but he has been declared fit to play. More»

Nigeria, Egypt, and Tunisia could all book their spots at next year's World Cup in the penultimate round of African qualifiers at the weekend, but the other two slots will only be decided next month. A home victory over Zambia- a side they beat away at the start of the group phase- will be enough to see Nigeria return to the finals after reaching the second round in Brazil in 2014. Last month's convincing 4-0 win over Cameroon, inspired by the return of Victor Moses to the team, saw them eliminate the reigning African champions and establish a three-point advantage, with two games to play, at the head of Group B. "We must wrap this race up on Saturday. Our team has shown professionalism, dedication and determination to be in this position," captain John Obi Mikel said in the build-up to the match in Uyo. Zambia's young side upset Algeria away in their last game to stay in the race and give themselves hopes of an unlikely turnaround, after picking up a solitary point from their opening two matches. Egypt play on Sunday against Congo in Alexandria in a match expected to produce a routine win and which follows 24 hours after their two rivals in Group E - Uganda and Ghana -- go head-to-head in Kampala. Uganda are two points behind Egypt and Ghana four points adrift of the group leaders, as they face missing out on the World Cup after appearing at the last three finals. For Egypt, World Cup qualification has been something of a Holy Grail since their last appearance at the tournament in Italy in 1990 with several heart-breaking failures since. Injuries to key players have ratcheted up the pressure as coach Hector Cuper told a press conference in Cairo at the start of the week. "The challenge is stressful, of course, I'm taking hypertension medicine because of it. "Life is full of stress, but the challenge of reaching the World Cup is the toughest stress I've faced," he said. Tunisia's three-point advantage over the Democratic Republic of Congo in Group A has also put them in a strong position to qualify although both countries play away on Saturday in their penultimate ties. Tunisia are away in Guinea while the Congolese take on Libya. In Group C, the Ivory Coast have a narrow one point advantage over Morocco, but have a tough match in Mali on Friday. Morocco host Gabon, who have Pierre-Emerick Auabemyang back, on Saturday. In Group D, all four teams are still in with a chance as the Cape Verde Islands host Senegal and Burkina Faso are away in Johannesburg to take on South Africa. Only the five group winners advance to next year's World Cup finals. More»
