Ousted President Mubarak says Egypt can bounce back against Ghana

Ousted President Hosni Mubarak has said Egypt can bounce back from a heavy first leg 1-6 defeat when they play against Ghana on Nov. 19 in the second leg of the play-off, Al Arabiya television reported on Thursday, quoting former Egyptian football player Mustapha Younes.

Younes spoke to Al Arabiya after he met with Mubarak, who is under house arrest since he was released from prison in August.

“I told him it is difficult for us to win Ghana here, but he told me there is nothing difficult for the Egyptian people and there is nothing impossible and hopefully our players…will bring smiles to the Egyptian people,” Younes said.

“I explained to him that the situation of Egypt’s football team has changed from when captain Hassan Shehata was in charge of the players and when our team was strong,” Younes told Al Arabiya.

Younes said Mubarak is keeping up with the Egyptian football “despite the situation he is going through.” Ghana has urged FIFA to reconsider its decision to allow the second leg match to take place in Egypt citing security concerns.

The country has been in turmoil since the ouster of President Mohammad Morsi on July 3.

      Mubarak can say wat he wants now cos, he now have the backing of the WORLDS POLICE COUNTRY (USA) who is applying his principles to curb the Political wing- The Moslem Brotherhood out of power even thoo, Egyptian masses choosed him from the ballot box in a Democratically way..Now he Mubarak is doing good behind BARS and the party that he choosed to BAN when he Mubarak was in the office Leader is joining him in bars ..But still nothing will change from Ghanian persperctives not to go to Brazil in 2014..The venue is going to be changed to a neutral groungs next week as EGYPT is not save for this important secong leg match between the MIGHTY BLACK STARS .. Orlando Pirates are also fighting tooth and nail to avoid playing in Cairo.

          In this modern world one doesn’t need to stay in your country before he can tell you what’s happening there, we live in a global village so everyone is aware of what’s going on around the globe!

          thank u caputo for showing this FOOL that this is not 1850 when one lived in one corner of the world unaware of whats happening in the other corner. there’s cnn,bt,al jazeera, etc,etc. not to mention the platform that you’re using to express your ignorance: THE INTERNET. your statement is baseless because even we outsiders may be able to tell u whats going on; as you’re cooped up in your homes afraid of the chaos outside. think before u speak.
