Football's Coming Home

Even though Egypt needs a mammoth win over Ghana to qualify for the World Cup, the good news is the Pharaohs are playing the second leg in their rightful place in Cairo and fans will be allowed in.

Egypt has an almost impossible gap to make up for after its embarrassing 6 – 1 defeat to Ghana. The good news is that FIFA has confirmed that the final match to decide who will get to play in the World Cup will be played in Cairo.

Even better news is that fans will be able to actually attend the match that will be taking place at the army-owned Air Defence Stadium in Cairo on November 19th. It is essentially a foregone conclusion that Egypt won't make it, but on the plus side FIFA has stated that decision to stage the November 10th African Champions League final between Ahly and S.A Orlando Pirates at the same stadium is a positive sign that things are back to normal.

The decision is welcomed by all, and we hope that these events go without incident, however we can only assume security will be tight, as we’re sure that there are plenty who are looking to release their frustration after what is likely to be another failed attempt to make it to the World Cup.

There’s no word when tickets will be available but as soon as they are, we will definitely make sure you know about it.
