Egypt's Mohamed Salah on his Premier League debut with Liverpool but the team conceded a stoppage-time equaliser to draw 3-3 with Watford in a thrilling clash on Saturday. The in-form winger won a penalty which Roberto Firmino converted in the 55th minute before scoring himself two minutes later following an assist from the Brazilian to make it 3-2. After a fast breakaway, Firmino lifted the ball over the advancing keeper, with Salah outpacing his marker to volley home into an empty net. Salah was also unlucky not to complete at least a personal double, having wasted some goal-scoring chances after causing Watford's defence all sorts of problems with his pace down the flank. However, Miguel Britos scored for Watford at the death to prevent Liverpool from claiming an opening win. Salah was substituted with four minutes remaining, making way for James Milner. The 25-year-old, who joined from AS Roma in the summer, was one of Liverpool's top performers in the pre-season, netting four goals in six games. More»

Out-of-action Egypt fell one spot to 25th place in the FIFA global rankings this month, although the drop has not affected their position as the top-ranked African team. The Pharaohs' last competitive game was against Tunisia in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in June, when they lost 1-0 at Rades Stadium in Tunisia. Egypt will face Uganda in the third round of the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers on 31 August in Uganda. Egypt, who were ranked in the global top ten in 2010 during their golden era after three successive Africa Cup of Nations wins (in 2006, 2008 and 2010), still dominate Africa in FIFA's July ranking. Egypt is three places ahead of Democratic Republic of the Congo (28), Senegal (31), Tunisia (34) and Cameroon (35). They have also kept their lead among Arab countries, above Tunisia (34), Algeria (48), Saudi Arabia (59) and Morocco (60). Brazil returned to the lead of the global ranking after the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup winner Germany replaced the Canarinho last month. Namibia were the best mover in the rankings that were released on Thursday, jumping 20 positions to 136th place, while Curacao made the worst move, dropping 18 places to 86th. More»

Zamalek's recent woes continued on Tuesday when they were ousted from the Egypt Cup after a late 2-0 loss to Masry in the semi-final in Alexandria to finish the season empty-handed. Abdallah Gomaa, a Zamalek target, converted a debatable penalty four minutes from time before Abdallah Bika finished off a breakaway deep in stoppage time to lift Masry to their first cup final since they won the trophy with a 4-3 victory over Arab Contractors in 1998. Tempers flared following the final whistle, with Zamalek's angry players haranguing the referee in protest at the decision to award Masry a penalty after Ahmed Tawfik was adjudged to have fouled Ahmed Gomaa. Zamalek missed out on the chance of setting a record of most consecutive Egypt Cup triumphs, having won the past four editions, including two at the expense of bitter Cairo rivals Ahly. The White Knights, who played their first game under the stewardship of caretaker manager Tarek Yehia, have not been able to win any title for the first time since 2012, losing the league to Ahly and failing to go beyond the group stage in the lucrative African Champions League.

Alexandria police arrested released 39 fans of Jordan’s Al-Faisaly football team on Monday, who were arrested Sunday for riots that followed the defeat of Faisaly against the Tunisian football team Al-Taragy, three to two, in the final match of the Arab League. The rioters were escorted to Bab Sharq police station in Alexandria where they were accused of destroying public property, assaulting security forces with empty bottles and stones and insulting them. The Al-Faisaly fans’ riots resulted in minor injuries to some security forces. About nine seats were destroyed in the stadium, along with other damages that have yet to be estimated, according to Director of the Alexandria Stadium, Sherif Saad. The Jordanian ambassador attended to the police station, following the arrest of the Jordanian fans, Al-Masry Al-Youm reported. The prosecutor for east Alexandria, Walid al-Behairy, formed a committee to estimate the losses incurred as a result of riots. More»

Africa giants Al Ahly are in hot pursuit of Syria international defender Ahmed Al Salih.  Twenty-seven-year-old Ahmed Al Salih has emerged as a realistic target for Al Ahly after the Egyptian Football Association passed on a rule to treat Syrian players as Egyptians a few days ago.  The player, who occupies the center-back position, has been contacted by Al Ahly officials for a potential move to the Red Devils but no deal has been reached yet, KingFut can confirm.  The Al-Arabi defender moved to Chinese Super League outfits Henan Jianye last January but has endured a tough time at his new club, making just four appearances for the team. Al Ahly are on the lookout for a center-back to replace the recently-departed Ahmed Hegazi, who set sail to English Premier League side West Bromwich Albion. The club have also been reportedly in touch with Smouha over a potential move for Mahmoud Ezzat. More»

Egypt's Zamalek interim coach Tarek Yehia has named his 21-man squad set to take on Al Masry in Egypt Cup semi-final on Saturday.  Zamalek is coming from a poor season, ending the Egyptian Premier League in third place, knocked out from group stages in CAF Champions League and exiting the Arab Club Championship at group stages without getting a single win.  The White Knights will be looking to save face and win the Egypt Cup to satisfy their disappointed fans, but they first need to overcome Hossam Hassan’s men. The match list has seen the return of Ayman Hefny who was sidelined in the recent period due to an injury sustained in the Whites game against Ahli Tripoli in the CAF Champions League. Goalkeepers: Ahmed El-Shennawy, Mahmoud Gennesh, Omar Salah. Defenders: Osama Ibrahim, Hosny Fathi, Ali Gabr, Mohamed Magdy, Mahmoud Hamdy El-Wensh, Shawky El-Said, Ahmed Aboul-Fotouh.

A stoppage-time strike from winter-signing Amr Barakat ensured Ahly booked a berth in the Arab Championship semis following a comeback 2-1 victory over Algeria’s NA Hussein Dey at Cairo’s Al-Salam Stadium on Friday. In a game where Ahly had no other option but to win, the Algerians took the lead two minutes after the half-hour mark when keeper Mohamed El-Shennawi failed to properly block a shot from Mohamed Boulaouidet from outside the area. But a penalty that was successfully converted by Saleh Gomaa got Ahly back into the game, before substitute Amr Barakat hit the all-important goal in the third minute of stoppage time following a perfect layoff from veteran striker Emad Meteb. With them securing their second win of the group stage, the Cairo giants now moved second of Group A, joining leaders Al-Faisaly and Tunisia’s Esperance in the semis. Ahly were the side in control inside the first half, with NA Hussein Dey leaving possession to the Cairo side’s backline while camping inside their own half. More»

The Egyptian Football Association has not sent any requests to FIFA, world soccer's governing body, demanding that Qatar be stripped of the 2022 World Cup hosting duties. "I was surprised by the reports. I know nothing about the report that quoted FIFA president Gianni Infantino as saying that Egypt is among six countries that have asked for Qatar to be banned from hosting the 2022 World Cup," EFA board member Mohamed Abou El-Wafa told an Egyptian TV programme on Sunday. "The association's board haven't even discussed the matter at an official meeting," Abou El-Wafa insisted. Some reports said Saturday that Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mauritania, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt had collectively written to FIFA asking it to remove Qatar as hosts under Article 85 of the FIFA Code, which allows for such action in emergency cases. FIFA has rubbished these reports, denying receiving any such letter. "The FIFA president has never received such a letter and subsequently has not done any comment on that," said a FIFA spokesman to Reuters. Despite the denial, Abou El-Wafa opened the door to future official steps regarding the matter. "I [personally] spoke with some of the EFA board members and they welcomed an official move to request that FIFA strip Qatar of the 2022 World Cup," he added. Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of supporting terrorism and of backing Iran. Doha denies the charges. Qatar, a country with a negligible soccer background or infrastructure, was a controversial winner of the right to host the 2022 event, which will be held in November and December to minimise the impact of the desert state's harsh climate.

Ahead of the Cairo derby showdown against Zamalek, Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry said that his players are fit for the game, adding that he will not rest any of his key-players despite the early snatching of the Egyptian Premier League title. Egyptian Premier League champions Ahly, who secured the title four weeks before its end, are set to face rivals Zamalek, who placed third on the team table with 66 points on the final matchday of the domestic tournament on Monday. "I will face Zamalek with the regular squad, as I will not rest the key-players due to the game's importance for the fans and the technical staff," El-Badry was quoted as saying on the club's official website on Saturday. "Despite securing the title early, the game against Zamalek has special preparations for the players, technical staff and fans, so I look forward to introducing a superb performance during the game." "All Ahly players are fit for the game against Zamalek, and we will do our best to finish the season with a high performance to please the team's supporters," El-Badry said. More»

Riots took place Saturday night, following the football match between the Egyptian football club of Zamalek and the Libyan club of Ahly Tripoli in Alexandria. 20 fans of Zamalek club known as ‘Ultras White Knights’ were arrested for their participation in these ‘riot acts.’ The acts took place at Borg Al-Arab stadium, where the match between the two aforementioned teams was held, and led to the injury of seven people as a result of mutual clashes between Zamalek fans and officials from the stadium. According to the state-run newspaper of Akhabr Al Youm, the riots erupted directly after the end of the match between the fans of the two teams, as the Egyptian team of Zamalek’s fans expressed outrage after their team tied with the Libya Ahly Tripoli. The tie between the two teams pushed fans of the Zamalek team (Ultras White Knights) to start destroying seats of the stadium and launching fireworks in different parts of the arena, located in Alexandria. The injured people were transferred immediately to the nearest hospitals and 20 fans of the Egyptian team of Zamalek were arrested by police forces following participation in riots within the stadium. The Ultras White Knights is a group or ardent football fans who support the Zamalek football club. They have been involved in various controversial events in recent years. In February 2015, the Zamalek Sports Club’s hardcore fan group lost 20 group members in clashes with security outside a military-run stadium in Cairo. Clashes broke out shortly before a premier league match between the Zamalek and ENPPI football teams. The Interior Ministry said that the fans did not hold tickets for the game and blamed the deaths on a stampede, the UWK accused police of indiscriminately firing tear gas at supporters crammed inside a narrow stadium gateway.
