Salah & El-Nenny’s Basel virtually crowned Swiss champions

Posted on May 29, 2013

and El-Nenny’s Basel are on the brink of defending their Swiss League title for the fourth straight season after beating 1-0 on Wednesday.

internationals Mohamed Salah and El-Nenny both started on the bench against Young Boys before replacing Marco Streller and David Degen on the 60th and 77th minute respectively.

Fabian Frei led the Swiss champions to the crucial win after scoring a 55th minute penalty.

Young Boys had ex-Smouha hitman , who has scored four goals in his last six games, spearheading their attack.

Basel are now expected to lift the league title for the fourth consecutive year when they host St. Gallen on Saturday.

, who also won 2-1 at St. Gallen, face an almost impossible task to claim the title as they trail Basel by 3 points and would need to overturn a goal difference of 16 goals with one match remaining.

20-year-olds Mohamed Salah and El-Nenny have been an integral factor in Basel’s all but certain league triumph, with the former scoring five goals and creating four in 27 previous league appearances since joining from Arab Contractors last summer, while El-Nenny has been pulling the strings in the heart of midfield since arriving from Contractors in January on an initial six-month loan. El-Nenny has recently been rewarded with a four-year contract.

Salah and El-Nenny were both named in Bob Bradley’s Egypt national team provisional squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
