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. Midfielders: Tarek Hamed, Ibrahim Salah, Ahmed Tawfik, Moruf Youssef, Mahmoud Dunga, Ayman Hefny, Shikabala, Mohamed Mosaad, Ahmed Refaat. Forwards: Bassem Morsi, Hossam Paolo. More»

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.

A double from under-fire striker Amr Gamal sent Ahly to the African Champions League quarter-final following a 3-1 comeback victory over Cameroon's Cotonsport in Alexandria on Saturday. Needing a win to book a last-eight berth, Ahly dominated the early exchanges but surprisingly fell behind when Cotonsport's Jean-Joseph Kombous struck on the break after 12 minutes to silence around 20,000 fans who were allowed to attend the match at Borg El-Arab Stadium in Egypt's second biggest city. But Gamal, who is often criticised by the Ahly faithful, soon restored parity with his first Champions League goal in more than a year and veteran playmaker Abdallah El-Said put them ahead after a flowing move in the first half. Gamal headed home early in the second half to make sure of the victory as record eight-time winners Ahly continue their bid towards their first Champions League title since 2013, with Cotonsport waving goodbye to the competition with six defeats from six matches.

Ahly will be eyeing nothing less than victory when they host Cameroon’s Cotonsport in the CAF Champions League final Group D game at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium on Saturday. Going into the game in third position on eight points, one behind second-placed Wydad Casablanca and three adrift of leaders Zanaco, Ahly have no other option but to beat already-eliminated Cotonsport to book a last-eight berth. Given the Cameroonians dismal record of nil points, the Reds should find no problem cruising to an easy win against their unfancied opponents. The Ahly management, however, was keen to stress that they should not rest on their laurels against the group outsiders, with goalkeeping coach Tarek Soliman citing low-key league games where they failed to win. “Who said the game against Cotonsport will be easy? There is no such thing in football,” Soliman told Ahly’s satellite TV channel. “We strived to draw against newly-promoted Sharqeya in the league, where we could have lost the game in the final minutes. “That’s not the only game where we failed to win, but there were also other games where we even struggled to draw.” The Reds, who played out a goalless draw at Zanaco in the previous group game, go into the Coton fixture with an almost fully-fit squad. They will be missing skipper Hossam Ghaly after the latter expressed discontent upon his substitution in the 1-1 league draw with Masry a few days ago. Left-back Hussein El-Sayed, long-term absentee Marwan Mohsen and winger Ahmed Hamoudi are nursing respective injuries, with Ahly particularly staffed in these positions. A limited number of 10,000 Ahly fans will be allowed to cheer on their side against Cotonsport, as has always been the case in African games. More»

Zamalek will now have to wait till the final round of the Champions League Group B after being stunned 3-1 by a below-par CAPS United side in disappointing fashion in Harare on Saturday. Going into the game looking for a win to improve their position ahead of the final home game against Ahli Tripoli, Zamalek were not helped by some sloppy finishing in front of goal and poor defending at the other end. Arguably against the run of play, Ronald Pfumbidzai gave the home side the lead just one minute after the half-hour mark, before Stanley Ohawuchi leveled the scoring just one minute before half-time. With now Zamalek back into the game and supposedly eyeing the winner, it was the Zimbabweans who scored twice through striker Abbas Amidu – who struck at death his side's third. Zamalek did not lose hope of qualifying though, with them having to wait till the final round as they should beat Ahli Tripoli, while hoping CAPS do not mount a surprise and beat USM Alger in Algiers.

Egypt's Zamalek will be hoping to turn their usual dominance into goals as they meet Zimbabwe's Caps United away from home on Sunday with an African Champions League quarter-final berth at stake. The last year's runners-up paid for their profligacy in recent Champions League matches, having only claimed one win in four Group B games, which came against Caps United. Their hopes to advance to the last eight were dealt a serious blow following a 2-0 defeat at USM Alger last month and there will be no room for further stumbles as the group race heats up in the penultimate round.

Zamalek will be looking for a much-needed consistency when they face relegation-threatened side Aswan in the Egyptian Premier League on Thursday as they prepare for a much more important African Champions League clash in midweek. Although the White Knights have notably improved of late under Portuguese coach Inacio Augusto, having won their last three league matches, their fans are still worried over some unconvincing displays. They needed a stoppage-time goal to salvage a 1-1 draw at home to USM Alger in Champions League Group B early this month and will be desperate to avoid any stumble in the away clash against the Algerians next week. Zamalek still top their group with five points from a win and two draws, one ahead of USM and Libya's Ahli Tripoli. With arch rivals Ahly winning the domestic league title with four matches to spare last month and second-place Maqassa ensuring they would finish in the last Champions League berth, Zamalek's only target is to cement their third place to qualify for the Confederation Cup, Africa's secondary club competition. They are three points ahead of Masry and six clear of Smouha, although they are likely to be deducted three points at the end of the season for withdrawing from a league game against Maqassa in April. Inacio said he will have to find a solution to Zamalek's profligacy after they wasted some easy goal-scoring chances in the draw with USM Alger. "We are still suffering from wasting easy scoring chances, but we will work hard in the coming period to overcome this issue," said the former Sporting Lisbon coach. More»
