Egypt achieved a thrilling victory over Tunisia 3-2 in the 2019 African Nations Cup qualifier.

The Pharaohs shined against Tunisia presenting amazing performance, especially in the second half, crowned by Salah’s last minute goal which gave Egypt an important three points sharing the group leadership alongside Tunisia with 12 points.

Egypt’s three goals were through the winger, Mahmoud Hassan Trezeguet, Baher el-Mohammady and Mohamed Salah. While Tunisia appeared in the game through Naim el-Seliti’s brace.

Naim el-Seliti took the lead for Tunisia in the 13th minute before Trezeguet equalizes the score for Egypt in the 32nd minute. Baher el-Mohammady doubled the score in the 60th minute through a brilliant header.

El-Seliti scored Tunisia’s second goal in the 72nd minute before Salah’s last minute goal came in an amazing way.

The Pharaohs deserved to win after a strong performance and offensive game led by the Mexican coach, Javier Aguirre, and only individual mistakes gave Tunisia their two goals.

The two teams met at Borg el-Arab stadium and their first match at Rades Stadium ended by a 1-0 victory for Tunisia through Taha Yassin Khneisi in June 2017.

The match was a good opportunity to push a number of new players who have joined the team during the current camp, or who have not had a chance in previous matches like the midfielder, Mohamed Mahmoud, and the striker, Taher Mohamed.

Aguirre continued his amazing run with the national team as he achieved four victories in four official games since he was appointed national team manager following Egypt’s world Cup early exit.

Egypt and Tunisia secured qualification for the tournament since the last round after Egypt achieved an away 2-0 victory over eSwatini, while Tunisia defeated Niger 2-1 in Niamey.

Wimbledon Championships Cancelled For The First Time Since World War II

The Wimbledon championships have been cancelled for the very first time since World War II as the coronavirus pandemic keeps spreading and cancelling along the way sports events and this time, wiping out the entire tennis grasscourt season.

This will mark the first time for Wimbledon to be canceled ever since World War II back in 1945, it will also mark the first time for the event to not be played during peacetime.

“It is with great regret that the main board of the All England Club and the committee of management of the championships have today decided that The Championships 2020 will be cancelled due to public health concerns linked to the coronavirus epidemic,” the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) said in a statement.

“The 134th Championships will instead be staged from June 28 to July 11, 2021.”

 

Following the cancellation of such a mega event and with the pandemic worsening in both Europe and the states, the men’s ATP Tour, women’s WTA Tour and the International Tennis Federation have all extended the suspension of professional tennis for another five weeks to July 13.

As much as it saddens us to see our most anticipated events get canceled, it comes as a necessary measure to fight off the virus and limit its spread.

On a much brighter note, not all sporting events have been cancelled yet, the French Open is postponed until September 2020 and the U.S. Open is still set to take place on August 24th.

Empty Stadium Due to Zamalek’s Failure to Show Up

Published

Empty Stadium

The Ahly and Zamalek conflicts are growing non-stop! Not only was there the fight that broke out last Thursday at the Egyptian Premier League, but also controversial point of views have  been discussed about yesterday’s scandal!

A match was to be played yesterday between both Ahly and Zamalek at precisely 7:30, but due to ‘weather conditions‘, Zamalek missed the match! What? Yes they were the ones to win last match, but yesterday’s incident left people puzzled.

Due to the heavy rain and terrible weather conditions as well as traffic jams , the referee of yesterday’s match postponed the game to 8:30 pm to allow the Zamalek team extra time to arrive and get settled in for the game.

At 8:30 pm, Zamalek team still hadn’t arrived which is when the referee gave an extra 10 minutes before calling off the match. This all leads back to the rumors that have been going around since last time’s game.

If you remember clearly, both teams got into a huge knockout with players Kahraba and Shikabala truly shaming our country by acting violently. Both players received their consequences, but Mortada Mansour is rumored to have disliked the decisions that are being taken.

Since Thursday’s match, Mortada decided that they won’t be playing the game that was to take place last night! He claims that his reasons are due to the unfair treatment between both teams, but rumor has it that he feared Zamalek would lose last nights game against Al Ahly.

Another rumor states that Mortada had originally planned to fake injuries from his players in hopes of not having to play the match. On the other hand, those rumors got leaked very quickly which is why Mortada swore he wouldn’t play the game in the first place! Do you think that’s true?

Zamalek missed yesterday’s match supposedly due to the heavy rain that’s been poring lately. Now people are skeptical about them having really missed the match. Anonymous tip claims that the Zamalek team had been stalling the entire way to the stadium by stopping at petrol stations or even supermarkets.

Either way, no one can really pin point the truth behind yesterday’s shocking incident. We’ll never truly understand the intentions behind the Zamalek team and Mortada Mansour but the fact that they missed the game earned the Ahly team 3 points automatically. Also, three points have already been deducted from the Zamalek team for having missed the match.

“We are sorry for this scene and we will apply the regulations. After coordinating with the security forces we were informed that there were no obstacles preventing both teams’ buses from arriving at the stadium,” the EFA said following the game.

With all that said, we want to know what you think! What do you believe actually happened yesterday? Do you think that the rumors are actually true or do you think that Zamalek purposely missed yesterday’s match and are just pointing fingers at the terrible weather?
