Egypt seeks investigation into referee in Russia defeat

Egypt vs Enrique Caceres

The Egyptian Football Association confirmed on Friday that they will launch a formal protest against the work of Paraguayan referee, Enrique Caceres and his team of assistants during their game against Russia in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday.

The 3-1 defeat to the Russians means the Egyptians were knocked out of the World Cup and that their final Group A match against Saudi Arabia on June 25th has nothing to play for.

“We want an investigation into the performance of the whole refereeing team,” Egyptian Football Association president Hany Abo Rida commented in the media.

Rida said he felt defender Ahmed Fathi was pushed when he put the ball into the own net to open the scoring at the first half and that Egypt should have been given a second penalty in the game when striker Marwan Moshen went down in the Russia area in the 78th minute with score 3-1.

“The referee should have used VAR (the Video Assistant Referee system) to check and award the penalty. They should have also seen that Fathi had been pushed,’ said Rida, who added it was Egypt’s “right,” to ask for an investigation.

Rida also asked Egyptian supporters for understanding after their World Cup, where they were without the injured Mohamed Salah for their opening game against Uruguay, in a match where they played well only to lose to a last-minute Jose Gimenez header.

“I know people in Egypt are not happy with our results, but it is our first tournament in 28 years and we lacked experience,’ he explained

Top Brazilian actress, Bruna Marquezine has confirmed that she and Neymar have ended their relationship.

Marquezine didn’t go into details about the break-up when she spoke about it at a Gala event in Brazil on Thursday.

She said the relationship ending was bossed by Neymar adding that there is still “a lot of love” between both of them.



“It was a decision that came from him, but there is a lot of respect, a lot of love, for him and for everything that we have lived for,” she said in an interview. “You know I do not usually talk about my personal life. I’ll talk about it because I have to talk, but it will only be once.”

Reports had claimed that the famous pair were at odds over politics in their native country, where the country is in the midst of a heavily polarised presidential election.

But Marquezine was quick to clear up that point so as not to stoke anger in what she called a “very critical moment” for her country.

“I want it to be clear that it would not be for that,” she said. “It was a decision of him, but there is a lot of love and respect, it’s all right.”

The pair had been spotted together earlier in the month at Disneyland and have been dating off and on since 2012.

Chelsea vs Man United: Mourinho promises decency at Stamford return

Published

on

Jose Mourinho insists he will be on his best behaviour on his return to Stamford Bridge, but hopes his Manchester United side inflict Chelsea’s first defeat of the season on Saturday.



The Portuguese won three Premier League titles in two successful spells in charge of Chelsea, but has lost all three of his previous visits to Stamford Bridge as United manager without even scoring a goal.

And while Mourinho claimed that the fixture is now just like any other as far as he is concerned, he also conceded that he would not celebrate should United break that run to ease the mounting pressure on their manager.

“For me, it is another game,” said Mourinho. “Would I celebrate like crazy my team’s goal at Stamford Bridge or my team’s victory at Stamford Bridge? I don’t think so.

“I think I would try to control myself and to respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and stadium for many years.”

“I want to do well for my team, players, support. I am 100 percent Manchester United tomorrow – no more space for anything other than respect for the stadium and the fans,” added Mourinho.

Mourinho’s promise to control his emotions comes at the end of a week in which he has been charged by the FA following comments he made towards a TV camera after his team’s dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle before the international break.

It is understood the United manager used “abusive, insulting or improper language” in his native tongue.

Even though Mourinho was never in danger of being suspended for the visit to his old club, United have requested an extension for his official response and the FA have duly allowed him until Wednesday to do so.

When asked whether he felt he was being victimised by the governing body, Mourinho insinuated he is more harshly treated than other managers.

“If I answer to your question I probably have another process because I cannot imply bias, so my answer is no answer,” he said.
