Doesn't look like it's going to be a very good game.

There is some hard criticisme on the second stadium of Egypt where we will be playing in tonight.
This is what the belgian press has to say today:

According to belgian correspondances the state of the pitch and the dressing room is plain awful.
The belgian delegation says it's shocked. The situation is disturbing and it's unimaginable how they could welcome a european team like that.

There is barely any grass on the pitch and it's filled with holes. Very dangerous to get injuries. "It looks more like a field to plant patatoes on."
"The best way to play here is just to skip the midfield and keep kicking long balls" says defender Olivier Doll.

After the training the medical staff forbid the players to take a shower in the dressing room. The toilets were as filthy as the ones in some public train stations. The showers were dirty with fungus growing all over it and rusty pipes.

The president called the situation unacceptable.

--------------------------------------

Hmmm... state of the field souns concerning. I kind of fear we wont be seeing a very good game tonight. :/

"I never knew my birth parents. There was a car accident. my birth mother was incinerated, and I only survived because her smoking carcass had formed a protective cocoon of slaughtered human effluence. A Belgian man and his fifteen year-old love slave were looting the accident scene, came across a blood soaked baby, moi, and they raised me to be evil."

Dont know the name of the stadium.
But I dont think you can completely blame the egyption football association for this incident since. Their first stadium is currently out of use, because there are works (repairs, expansions) going on there.

The most embarrasing thing is that 2 months ago the belgian football associations (who got a tour) approved this stadium as capable to host a world cup-game.

That is indeed strange.

Well, our first stadium, Cairo stadium, is locked for upgrades because we are hosting the African Cup of Nations 2006.

You will probably play on the Military Academy stadium or the Arab Contractors stadium, which are not perfect, but very far from being "filthy". They are both owned by respected entities. Military Academy I believe is owned by the Army which has good money - in fact the Army owns a premier league team so they are good spenders. And the Arab constractors are one of the biggest contracting companies in the middle east. In fact, many European teams have already played on those stadiums.

How confident are you that this information is accurate?

In any cases, the incompetence of some of our managements in general is nothing new or shocking. Our apologies for this issue. Sometimes, 70 million have to pay for the mistakes of a few bastards .

It's Arab contractors stadium. I don't think it's a world class stadium or anything but it shouldn't be that bad like Sabry said. Then again, I haven't been to Egypt in a very long time. And just like he said, you can never underestimate the incompetence of managers there. He hit the nail on the had there.

Lets not push the stadium thing .. I think those reports are exagerrated considering those stadiums were "supposed" to host the failing world cup bid. What did Belgium really expect, 5 class hotel washrooms .. Egypt is not a European country.. We also treat everyone the same (Europeans, Asians, Africans, etc).. So Belgium should not be looking for preferential treatments based on them being Europeans. This particular stadium hosted FC Midjtyland of Denmark last weekend. And as you can see from the match, there is grass on the pitch

As for being ashamed to be Belgian, there is nothing to be ashamed of my friend. You had some injured players and this was nothing more nothing less than a friendly. Although, we have had our good luck against you in the last couple of years

This is just frustration, because we were once a team that demanded respect. Over the years, we just have got worse and worse. It is really pissing me off. Even though it was a friendly, we needed a win to boost the morale. Now we have nothing.......

So did you guys. You only played with Egypt-based players and you missed out on Mido and Ghaly.

The hotel: Our players didn't deserve any better than that really.
As for the field; I didn't notice anything bad about it. The Egyptians seemed to play just fine on it. :thmbup:

BTW: To be a bit positive on the game (afterall you guys did play very well no need to be that modest): That number 10 what a player.
Allong with the number 7 and Barakak (or something like that) the best players on the field IMO.

We always treat visiting teams exceptionally well, and I'm sure that the Belgian national team players and staff stayed in a 5 star hotel and we do have many 5 star hotels in Egypt, and in Cairo specifically. Afterall, we're famous for tourism you know.

The pitch wasn't in tip top shape but it wasn't as bad as I read in the article that you posted. If the person that wrote this article thinks that this is a poor pitch that should be used for planting potatoes (lol I find this pretty funny tbh ), then he should take a look at playing surfaces in other parts of Africa.

That #10 is Emad Meteb. He plays for my club, Al-Ahly. He finished as the leading scorer in the youth African cup of nations back in 2003 when Egypt eventually won the Cup. He's also leading the scoring charts in the league this season even if it's his first season in the senior team ! :eekani: And he's already an international player and he scored our winner against South Korea as well. He's 20 years old and I'm sure that he has attracted some eyes there in Belgium with that amazing second goal. He also socred a great goal against England's U-20 side back in the U-20 World Cup. A pretty talented lad.

#7 is our right back, Ahmed Fathy. He plays for Ismaily and he was invited to a trial back in the summer at Arsenal (yup, THAT Arsenal) but he didn't succeed there. He played a couple of matches when Arsenal were camping in Austria. He's 20 years old as well.

Yes Nez, I really really really really really doubt the Belgian delegation were referring to a hotel, because many hotels in Egypt and Cairo in particular are top notch 5 star hotels (that I myself can not afford to stay in ). And it is just impossible that Belgium were given a 3 or 2 star hotel because the EFA has no reason to do that since if I recall the visiting teams are taken care of by the ministry of tourism (and they are quite decent), so the EFA pays nothing.

I suspect the Belgian team is complaining about a TRAINING pitch they were given (not the AC stadium)...

My mistake indeed. I meant the dressing rooms and the traning pitch. The hotel was class from what I've heard of it.
