Welcome to the CWC thread :) . As you know, we have 2 Arabic participants in this tournament: Ittihad (Saudi Arabia) , Ahly (Egypt). Great teams, whom I hope will give a good account of club football in our part of the world.

This thread will cover all their news and games, starting with the match between them. The game will be held on Sunday, and the winner will play Brazilian club, Sao Paulo. The loser faces the loser of Saprissa v Sydney.

Tournament schedule:

1. Ittihad v Ahly , 11/12
2. Sydney v Saprissa, 12/12
3. Sao Paulo v W1 , 14/12
4. Liverpool v W2 , 15/12

Its going to suck for whoever loses between Ittihad and Ahly as they will probably end up playing FC Sydney, not much of a team either. The whole trip is a waste almost!

It would suck (does anyone want to lose), and the game with the loser of the other is pointless. But at least, if they win that game they can say they weren't the worst ;)

So much money for the winners! I hardly see any consideration from football fans around the globe for this tournament, yet Fifa placing so much money in it! Hope Ittihad and Ahly beat the fags.

I think it would have been more interesting not to have had the two play each other at this stage of the tournament, because the way it was set up ensured that one Arab team was eliminated right at the beginning. Though they would be underdogs against Liverpool and São Paulo and probably wouldn't have met each other in the final anyway, it would have been more fun to have allowed both the chance the advance.

I think so tooo. Africa and Asia usually have the Afroasian cup (African CL champ vs Asian CL champ), so there wasn't much sense in grouping them together in the first round.

Can't find the goal anywhere, don't think anyone in their right mind would waste an hour uploading that garbage. I'm still pissed at the keeper, I think he should have his contract terminated, this is really not the first (rather the 100th) time that he's fumbled that same cross.

I have seen the goal on TV and I can absolutely live without watching it again:D What a mistake by El-Ahly keeper! Though the defense should have marker Noor better than that.
