“It will be proper to move the game away from Cairo. We all know what is happening there at the moment.”
“Everybody is afraid for his life. Who is not afraid? So they must look at it so nothing untoward happens.
“We’re focused on the game and will leave the rest to the authorities to deal with it.
“But we can also express our opinion on what we think is the right thing to do.”
FIFA has ruled that Egypt FA address the security concerns in Cairo latest October 28 or they will move the second leg clash scheduled for November 19, to a neutral ground.
