22 Dead In Egypt Cairo's Football Clashes

Tags: Egypt News Sports Football

Clashes between football fans and security forces in the Egyptian capital Cairo have left at least 22 people dead, prosecutors say.

Fans of the Zamalek football club tried to force their way into a match without tickets, sparking the clashes, officials said.

The violence broke out ahead of a premier league game against ENPPI.

In February 2012, more than 70 people were killed in post-match violence after a game in Port Said.

On Sunday, police used tear gas to disperse the fans at the Air Defense Stadium in Cairo, with at least 20 injured, witnesses said.

Hard-core Egyptian football fans are often deeply politicised, and played a role in the overthrow of former President Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

Egypt has reduced public access to football matches following the violence in Port Said.

Many people believe police in Port Said stood by in revenge for the fans' role in anti-Mubarak unrest. Police deny the accusation.

WATCH: Ivory Coast beats Ghana 9 - 8, in penalty shootout, to win the 2015 African Cup Of Nations, hosted by Equatorial Guinea, who was fined by The Confederation of African Football, CAF.

The match between Ghana and Ivory Coast was a fierce match. For in the first half and in the second half both team performed a spectacular game-plays; both Ghana and Ivory Coast has not won the African Cup Of Nation for more than 10 years. 1982 was the last time that Ghana won the African Cup Of Nations, and so as Ivory Coast that won their last African Cup Of Nations in 1992.

Ivory Coast goal-keeper beats Ghana, by saving the last shoot (and two more shoots) and scoring the winner goal against Ghana.

Ghana is the second place winner, and while DR Congo beats Equatorial Guinea 4 - 2 to win the third place.

Nigeria To Ghana

The last time that Ghana won the African Cup Of Nations was in Black and White TV, which was in 1982. "Ghana needs to win in color TV, at least."

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

"Ivory Coast deserves to win this year's championship," BeeAfrican sports editor suggested. Ivory destroyed might Algeria 3 - 1Ivory Coast also punished DR Congo 3 - 1.

Ghana had more chances in the entire game than Ivory Coast, and with every possession that Ghana had, they moved on to goal. But there was none; Ivory Coast also played a strategy game by keeping Yaya Toure in the game until the end.

However, the 2015 African Cup Of Nations was well organized by Equatorial Guinea. But it turned up bad when angry fans between Ghana 3 - 0 Equatorial Guinea threw rocks, bottles, ets., at Ghana during the half of the game and during the 82 minutes of the game.

And Morocco was fined $1 million by the Confederation of African Football on Friday and may ultimately have to pay up to $10 million for failing to host this year's African Cup of Nations soccer tournament because of fears over Ebola; Morocco was also banned from the next two tournaments in 2017 and 2019, Africa's football body announced.

DR Congo 4 - 2 Equatorial Guinea (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations Tags: Football Sports DR Congo Equatorial Guinea (HIGHLIGHTS) 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations

Democratic Republic of Congo defeated Equatorial Guinea 4-2 on penalties after a 0-0 draw in Malabo on Saturday to finish third at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. No extra time was played and Cedric Mongongu converted the decisive penalty after the first play-off since their introduction in 1962 not to produce a goal.

West African neighbours and former champions Ivory Coast and Ghana square off on Sunday in Bata for the title and a US$1.5 million first prize.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS

DR Congo have appeared twice before in third-place play-offs, losing heavily to hosts Cameroon in 1972 and pipping 1998 hosts Burkina Faso on penalties.

Equatorial Guinea are competing at the Cup of Nations for only the second time and exited at the quarter-finals stage three years ago.

There was little goalmouth action during the opening half with Crystal Palace and DR Congo winger Yannick Bolasie spurning the best chance five minutes before half-time.

He darted in from the left flank to control a through pass with his chest and leave Iban Iyanga trailing in his wake. 
After allowing the ball to bounce several times, Bolasie unleashed a hard, rising shot that flew wide of the far post with goalkeeper Felipe Ovono a helpless onlooker.

VIDEO

DR Congo goalkeeper Robert Kidiaba -- at 39 the oldest footballer at the 2015 tournament -- had rescued the Leopards 10 minutes into the first half.

He blocked a strike from former Real Madrid winger Javier Balboa in a goalmouth scramble and, seconds later, blocked an equally close-range shot from captain and striker Emilio Nsue. The largely pedestrian half could partly be explained by the oppressive heat with the mercury touching 33 degrees Celsius for the late afternoon kick-off.

A quicker pace and more goalmouth excitement marked the second half with Kidiaba and the much younger Ovono kept busy, but as the game reached the three-quarter mark it remained goalless.

There was no lack of endeavour in the closing stages, but no goals either, with selfishness costing DR Congo a good chance three minutes into stoppage time as Lema Mabidi fired well wide with two team-mates unmarked.
