Ghana vs Egypt, World Cup Qualifier, First Leg; Watch It Live Beginning At Noon ET: Open Thread

Watch Ghana vs Egypt, Noon ET, live on beIN SPORT, beIN SPORT Espanol and DishWorld.

Don’t be surprised if you see a ton of neutral soccer fans cheering for Egypt today in their first leg of their World Cup qualifier against Ghana.

Egypt’s journey through the World Cup qualifiers in the past two years has been an incredible story, with the national team having to overcome so much adversity such as their footballers having no national league to play for because it was shut down, the riots at the Port Said massacre, playing in front of stadiums where fans were shut out and, despite all of this, maintaining an undefeated record in World Cup qualifying.

The Egyptian national soccer team, which is managed by former USMNT coach Bob Bradley, faces one of the most toughest teams in Africa — Ghana. After all of the adversity that Egypt has been through, they now know that they must defeat Ghana if they are to book their ticket to Brazil. It doesn’t get any tougher than this.

If Egypt are able to qualify for World Cup 2014, it’ll be a miracle. Egypt, and the majority of soccer fans in the United States, are behind Egypt.

    This should be good!

  2. Peter Quinn says:

    Oh boy. This could be really bad for Egypt.

  3. Peter Quinn says:

    Sloppy defense. Egypt have a chance.

  4. Brad says:

    Ray Hudson should call the game on the toilet, I’ve never heard an announcer make so many weird noises.

  5. Pakapala says:

    Not looking good at all for Egypt. If they can stop the bleeding, they might have a chance in the return leg.

  6. San Fransiscan says:

    Referee got it wrong, the goalkeeper got a hand to it. Doesn’t make a difference since it was 4-1. Can’t see Egypt turning this around.

    • Pakapala says:

      Getting a hand to it doesn’t mean it wasn’t a foul though. I really don’t see how the referee got it wrong, he got a hand on the ball and brought down the player.
      It’s a popular misconception that people think a challenge is not a foul as long as the defender touch the ball.

  7. Patrizio says:

    Good article in today’s Wall Street Journal about the many challenges on and off the pitch that Bob Bradley has faced in Egypt. One of which is the challenge of being seen by some as a spy for the US government. It is an article that is definitely well worth the read.

    Disappointed Egypt won’t be in the World Cup.
