    Just an idea… you should have people vote for a line-up. I think the Al Ahram newspaper website did that for the first match in Ghana. That would be cool 😛

      This was my 11 too! Ekramy over Shennawy, and I went with the Hazem Emam gamble over Fathi.

    Football has taught us nothing is impossible. Would love to see your face if we indeed go through 🙂

    • theREAL

      November 18, 2013 at 3:45 PM

      it it true that nothing is impossible. but there is a big difference between scoring 5 goals on any given day when u least expect it and scoring 5 goals on a PARTICULAR day, especially when ur opponent knows this fact. good luck. this match is nothing but a formality.

        where is ur africa cup?
        Remember 2010? It was a good day wasntit?

        • theREAL

          keep the afcon cup. we will exchange that for a trip to the world cup anytime. mind u that we’ve never had our “FULL” squad for the afcon in a long time. this squad that u will face tomorrow is still not our full with 3 starting defenders injured. but u will still lose.

          mind u that we’re inching closer to closer in our previous world cup appearances. dont be shocked if one of these days we lift the world cup trophy just like the u20. all u people will then stop talking about the afcon cup that even a mediocre team like zambia has won.

          if our 3 injured defenders come back for the world cup and we keep everybosy currently healthy, the semifinal of the world cup will not be enough. celebrate the afcon, since u havent made it to the mundial in 20+ years.

      every team has its bad days, just enjoy that you won good luck at the african cup. every team wins and losses no team is never unbeaten we beat you guys in the african cup 2010 and you guys beat us to go to the world cup, this is football you win some and you lose some. But stop being a loser about a win

    I am a Ghanaian but I think the Egyptians have shown maturity and professionalism before and after the first league. The pressmen are friendly and the fans just want to see good games. I hope this game will bring unity and togetherness irrespective of the outcome because in football, the outcomes are three. I pray that peace will settle in Egypt to reclaim its glorious moments. One thing that I’ve admired about Egypt is the fact that they want the game to be played in Egypt. Its not because they are looking to score 5 goals but the fans are looking for a good game. I know Ghana will qualify but the people the Egyptians are nice people. Don’t let politics to destroy your country. Nobody can live forever so we should forget about the material things. Bless you all and enjoy the game with peaceful hearts.
