We kick off another of our Pharaohs Abroad round-up with the dynamic duo of Mohamed Salah and El-Nenny both instrumental in FC Basel’s superb start to the to the 2013/2014 Swiss League campaign. Salah provided the assist as FC Basel beat Lausanne 2-0. Salah’s assist and full match highlights included in the link above.
Mohamed Salah and El-Nenny remain undecided on whether or not to travel for the club’s second leg of the Champions League qualifier against Maccabi Tel Aviv, which will take place in Israel, but Basel boss Murat Yakin says Salah is replaceable. It is to be noted that both Salah and El Nenny helped FC Basel secure a 1-0 victory over the Israeli outfit in the first leg. Should the duo be professional and participate? Cast in your VOTE now.
Egyptians proved their indoor football skills as Misr El-Maqassa, Egypt’s only representative in the 2013 Mini World Futsal Club Tournament held in Kuwait, won the first place in the tournament after a hard-fought 3-1 win against Ukrainian side MFC Cardinal-Rivne on Friday.
The 2013/2014 Egyptian Premier League season will feature 22 teams, including Al-Masry, for the first time in the competition’s history. KingFut.com fills you in on the details.
We leave you this week with an insightful, albeit quick interview with Bob Bradley on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart (currently hosted by John Oliver) to discuss the pressures of carrying the hopes of 90 million Egyptians towards one goal – Brazil 2014 – or as he himself put it – Kas El 3alam.
