Egypt Defeats Australia 3-0


The MVP

Much is said about Egypt's national team and often it's either to scold us for not being as good as them, like Europeans often do, or to hold us in contempt for not accomplishing all that we can. I was at work today but we fielded an experimental team with 7 younger players whereas Australia fielded a very solid team. After very disappointed results, 1-1 draw to Sierre Leone at home and a 1-0 loss to Niger in Niamey, it appears the old guard in Egypt is done. Familiars to many of you Europeans like Zaki and Mido are done and have been done for awhile. Now is the age of Gedo, Zidan, Muhammadi and Zaher.

With this win I can only hope that in a country that needs hope, that more nations will be put to rest by the sword of the pharaohs.

Sometimes, life isn't all bad.

'Mon the Pharaohs! I'll be pulling for them to make WC 2014. Better them than those bloody Tunisians, who always seem to fluke their way into it only to do poorly. :P

The Tunisians play very negative football, they hate to go on the attack. They're like Greece in that they'll rely on their defense and try to capitalize on one or two counterattacking chances.

Switzerland's like that against anyone who's any good, too.

On that note, in the last world cup Switzerland was the only team I saw that had collars on their shirts. What's up with that?

Maybe it's just their style. I remember a WC where Cameroon's jerseys had no sleeves. I think that was '06.

MVP , lets be honest Egyptians have always thought they are the best :P.

Egypt does play great football fast pace good tempo, however no need to insult other north african teams, Tunisia is a good side too, but look at the egyptian population and the Tunisian population ;)

We don't think we are the best, we are the best.

And with your kind of logic about the population, China and India should be in the World Cup every time.

Not to mention Canada should make the WC over countries like Togo and Slovenia. :P
