Egypt's soccer team will play in Cairo for the first time in two years when it competes for a spot in the World Cup. The Egyptian soccer association decided Wednesday to hold the second leg of the World Cup playoff Nov. 19 against Ghana at a military stadium in the violence-hit capital. The EFA also said that fans would be allowed in to watch the game at the 30 June Stadium, a military-owned venue recently renamed to commemorate the day this year when millions of Egyptians took to the streets to demand the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The decision to play in Cairo for the first time since late 2011 was made after discussions among the national soccer body, state authorities and sports minister Taher Abouzeid, a former player.

Pedro Rodriguez scored three goals and Victor Valdes saved another penalty in Barcelona's 4-0 win at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, keeping the defending Spanish league champions perfect through five rounds. Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesday's 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League. The Spain forward has five goals this season, making him the league's second-leading scorer behind Messi with six. Cesc Fabregas capped the rout in the 80th with Rayo bravely searching for a consolation goal. Barcelona provisionally took sole possession of the league lead, which Atletico Madrid could share if it won at Valladolid later. More»

Staging the tournament in the Middle East has caused much controversy because if it is held over its traditional dates in the middle of the year, players will have to contend with searing 50 degrees Celsius heat. Calls to move the World Cup to later in the year, during the European winter, have also been unpopular as it will cause major disruption to domestic league competitions in countries such as Spain, England, Italy, Germany and France. Asked by insideworldfootball.com about awarding Qatar the tournament, Blatter said: "It may well be that we made a mistake at the time." Blatter, who in May said it was "not rational" to play in Qatar in June and July, added: "On the other hand, you must also consider political and geo-political realities. "The World Cup is FIFA's biggest, if not only, global event. Who are we, the Europeans, to demand that this event has to cater to the needs of 800 million Europeans above all? More»

Hard to believe this is the same Rafael Nadal who was at home during the U.S. Open a year ago, nursing a bad left knee. Hard to believe this is the guy sent packing in the first round of Wimbledon in June, losing against someone ranked 135th. Looking fit as can be, and tough as — maybe even better than — ever, the No. 2-ranked Nadal pulled away from No. 1 Novak Djokovic 6-2, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Monday in a taut, tense U.S. Open final for his 13th Grand Slam title. They started in sunlight and finished at nighttime, a 3-hour, 21-minute miniseries full of cliffhangers and plot twists and a pair of protagonists who inspired standing ovations in the middle of games. There was no quit in either of them, during points that lasted 15, 25, even more than 50 strokes. This was their 37th match against each other, the most between any two men in the Open era, and third head-to-head U.S. Open final in the last four years. Nadal beat Djokovic for the 2010 title, and Djokovic won their rematch in 2011. More»

Tokyo was awarded the 2020 summer Games on Saturday, beating Istanbul in a head-to-head vote after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had addressed the International Olympic Committee in person to allay fears over the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant. The Japanese capital won the right to stage the sporting extravaganza for the second time, having hosted in 1964 when the Games first went to Asia, after two years of intense lobbying and tens of millions of dollars spent. For Istanbul it was a fifth unsuccessful bid to host a summer Olympics. Madrid, which had pitched a safe, affordable, "sensible" bid had been earlier eliminated first in a secret vote by International Olympic Committee members on a head to head with Istanbul after the two cities were tied in second place after the initial vote. Their attempt to host 2020 had been a third consecutive bid. The next summer Olympics will be hosted by Rio de Janeiro in 2016. More»

Egypt's Ahly announced on Monday that Mohamed Nagy 'Gedo' will re-join Hull City on a season-long loan, few hours after saying they had rejected an offer from the English Premier League side for the Egypt forward.Ahly made a U-turn after convincing Gedo to extend his current deal with the Cairo giants for two years. "The club have accepted Hully's offer after Gedo penned a new deal. Gedo's contract was due to expire at the end of the season. He is now tied to the club until 2016," Ahly, who were apparently worried that they risked losing the player for nothing if they accepted Hull's loan offer, said in a statement on their official website. Gedo revealed on Sunday that Hull were interested in re-signing him on loan, expressing his desire to re-join the club he played for in the second half of last season. However, Ahly football director Hadi Khashba said earlier on Monday that Gedo "was not for sale", citing head coach Mohamed Youssef's reluctance to offload one of his prized assets. More»

Zamalek’s hopes of earning a semi-final berth at the African Champions League were dealt a huge blow after their defensive woes allowed Orlando Pirates to claim a 4-1 victory in South Africa on Saturday. Goals from Lennox Bacela, Tlou Segolela, Sifiso Myeni and Daine Klate condemned Zamalek to an embarrassing defeat that leaves them with an uphill climb to avoid a likely exit from the group stage of Africa’s premier club competition. Winger Mahmoud Abdel-Razek ‘Shikabka’ scored a consolation for the success-starved Cairo side, who had to do without striker Ahmed Gaafar and central defender Mahmoud Fathallah due to automatic suspension. The defeat leaves them at the bottom of the group with a solitary point from three games, three behind arch-rivals Ahly and Congo’s AC Leopards and six adrift of leaders Orlando Pirates, who crushed Ahly 3-0 in Egypt in their previous game. Zamalek’s cautious approach saw coach Helmi Toulan deploy a three-man midfield and two deep-lying forwards without an established striker but the strategy hardly paid off, with Orlando Pirates given too much space to operate around the penalty area.

Ahly manager Mohamed Youssef expressed his displeasure concerning Ahly's 3-0 defeat against Orlando Pirates of South Africa on Sunday, added the team played under very difficult circumstances.The defending champions conceded their heaviest home defeat in the African Champions League after slumping to a stunning 3-0 loss to South Africa’s Orlando Pirates in the Red Sea resort of El-Gouna. "We suffered a heavy defeat but we played the game under very difficult circumstances," Youssef told Ahram Sports after Sunday's game. "The players played while fasting in a very heat atmosphere that's why they appeared out of form." Ahly players were forced to play while fasting, as it is the Muslim month of Ramadan, on Sunday afternoon in Gouna stadium due to the lack of floodlights after the Egyptian security turned down Ahly's request to have their Champions’ League group match in Cairo or Alexandria. Despite Sunday's defeat, Ahly's coach stressed that his side still has a chance to qualify for the competition's semis. He vowed to not repeat the same mistakes made against the Orlando Pirates ahead of their match against the AC Leopards, set to be played on 17 August in Congo. Ahly lie now at the bottom of group A with only one point, three points behind leading South African rivals Orlando Pirates. "We have learned a lot of lessons from Sunday's defeat, and I will do my best to avoid all mistakes against the Leopards." "We still have a chance in the competition and we will fight to keep our chances alive." More»

Cairo rivals Ahly and Zamalek shared honors in a dour African Champions League clash that witnessed the presence of a few thousand fans despite a crowd ban enforced by the Egyptian authorities. Striker Ahmed Gaafar, who has recently penned a new deal with Zamalek, gave them an early lead but Mohamed Abou-Treika, making his first Ahly appearance in more than six months after ending a loan spell at Emirati side Bani Yas, converted a second-half penalty to restore parity. Zamalek marked the debut of coach Helmi Toulan by extending their winless Cairo derby streak to 15 games, having last defeated their bitter rivals in an Egyptian Premier League game in 2007. They have not defeated Ahly in seven Champions League meetings. All four teams in Group A of Africa’s elite club competition have one point each after Orlando Pirates of South Africa and Congo’s AC Leopards settled for a goalless draw earlier this week. The hardcore supporters of both sides made good on their pledge to defy a crowd ban and attend the game, which took place in the Red Sea resort of El-Gouna. They were eventually allowed to enter the tiny 12,000-seat stadium by security forces. More»

Sunday’s African Champions League face-off between Cairo rivals Ahly and Zamalek will be played behind closed doors, the Egyptian football association (EFA) announced on Monday. The future of the anticipated match was uncertain, as officials debated whether or not to hold the match outside Egypt due to security concerns. Early on Sunday, Egyptian authorities agreed to move the game to El-Gouna, a Red Sea resort town that is about 22 km north of Hurghada’s International Airport. Despite threats made by hardcore fans of both teams to attend the match by force, the Egyptian football governing body insists the crowd ban is still in place. "The interior ministry sent us its official approval to hold the match but without fan attendance," EFA chief executive Sarwat Sweilam was quoted as saying by the EFA's official website. More»
