Egypt to face Zambia ahead of crunch World Cup qualifier

has tentatively accepted a request to face in a friendly match on November 14th to prepare for the World Cup qualifying reverse encounter against Ghana.

The test match against the Chipolopolo will be played four days after the Pharaohs open camp in Cairo.

The Egyptian FA (EFA) boss Gamal Allam has revealed that his outfit will not name a new substantive Pharaohs coach before the November 19th clash with the Black Stars, meaning Bob Bradley will stay in charge of the seven time African champions.

The EFA are considering the likes of Hassan Shehata, Hossam El-Badry and Shawky Gharib for the Pharaohs coaching job.

Bradley will name his squad on November 9th ahead of the crucial tie with coach Kwasi Appiah’s side.

Meanwhile, the Pharaohs goalkeeper’s trainer Zaki Abdel-Fattah has denied rumors that the Egypt FA is putting pressure on the coaching staff to recall 38-year-old midfielder Ahmed Hassan and veteran goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary, who is now 40-year-old, out of international retirement for the match against Ghana.

    What ,a picture to show to CAF and FIFA to convience the world that EGYPT is save to a return match with the Black Stars..Zambians might have been out of their minds to play friendly with the PHARAOHS .This picture speaks for itself that, EGYPTIANS are going to use the CHIPOLOPOLOS as guinea pigs or excape goats to convience FIFA that CAIRO is safe ?
    Muahahahahahahaha!! Diplomatically interligent COUNTRY Ghana is not going to buy this.
    I wonder what Theiry Nyann was thinking to show this picture to the world that playing in CAIRO is safe..What were U thinking Theiry Nyann to at least ,you know that the PHAROAHS are in a great danger to convience FIFA with 30.000 spectators to cheer the PHARAOHS..Hahahahahahahaha

    This picture speaks for itself..It shows how naturally aggressive north Africans are.You can clearly see the Zambian player trying to break away from a choke hold,while Gomaa further restrains him.hmm
    I just hope we get to play this interesting return leg in a festive but peaceful atmosphere and return to Ghana safely..
    I`m sure Pharaohs will whip Chipolopolo by a couple of goals..Which will boost their moral hahahah only to wake up to the NIGHTMARE of seeing BLACK STARS on nov.19

    the pic here is sending a bad message about egypt and though i am zambian, i do condone with the intent being passed to the general public. egypt has played many nations before and we havent heard of any overwhelming instances regarding a crucial match such as the world cup qualifiers and as such i do not expect ghana to use all possible ways just for the match to be shifted to a neutral ground. in fact there wud be no fairness assuming fifa agreed with ghana’s plea. we are all african and as such lefts not fuel or trigger violence where there is peace. peace to all soccer lovers.

    These Osama bin Laden people will bomb my black stars, I am very scared of these people there bombs. We should not place in this civil war torn country. The Good Egypt is long gone now. This Egypt that we used admire most is now a place where blood scatter everywhere in the street. What a shame and sad news.

    Egypt will prove to the world how peaceful they are come Nov 19. we treated the pharoahs like Kings in Kumasi.
    As a Ghanaian I know Ghana will win. But there will be no trouble. football is a game. Peace out.

      Well said, Kwesi. The Egyptian people know that anyway and throughout history Ghana have played more friendly games with Egypt more than any other country. When the draw came out I said this is the Game Ghana did not want and most Egyptians would also say the same. This unfortunately is football and one of us will not make it to Brazil but if Egypt does make it Ghanaians will be cheering for them all the way and if Ghana make it the Egyptian people will be cheering for us all the way. Let the better team win!!
