If you did watch yesterday’s match, you’ll know how fair it was for our Egyptian players. We’re not saying that all the racial slurs, lasers, and bottles of water made us lose, our performance was far from mediocre. But when I come to think about it, we could’ve actually made something with the penalties.
On the other hand, Sadio Mane’s winning shootout penalty sealed Senegal’s World Cup place with his Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah among those to miss for Egypt. Egypt captain Salah was one of several visiting players targeted by green laser pointers during the shootout. It is also claimed the Egypt team bus was attacked, causing injuries.
In a statement, the Egyptian Football Association [EFA] said it had lodged a formal complaint against its Senegalese counterpart before the match, filing this with Fifa, the Confederation of African Football [CAF], the match observer, and the security official.
Let’s hope that the FIFA and CAF would order a rematch in a neutral stadium so that we can perform in a better environment and perhaps maybe make it to the world cup.
