Soccer Madness

Last Week, Egypt played 2 soccer matches with Algeria to qualify for the World Cup in 2010.

Here are some pictures:

Of course, the next Wednesday, Egypt and Algeria played again, and this time, Algeria won 1-0, thus going to the World Cup next year and crushing Egypt’s return to the World Cup after 20 years. The next few days, rumors flew about Egyptians being killed in Sudan (where the last game took place), rioting in Zamelak by 100s of Egyptians in front of the Algerian Embassy, etc.
