Egypt captain Wael Gomaa claims the Pharaohs were unable to beat Ghana to the 2014 World Cup qualification ticket due to the long break in the Egyptian Premier League. 

Ghana humiliated the North African giants by handing down a 7-3 aggregate defeat in a double-legged tie in Kumasi and Cairo to reach their third straight World Cup while denying the seven-time AFCON champions their first ever appearance since 1990.

The Egyptian Premier League was suspended for almost two seasons due to home violence in chaotic political conditions and after seeing the top-flight league returning during the week, the defender has explained they failed to reach the finals mainly due to the inactivity of the season.

“The suspension of domestic football had a negative impact on players. We are always frustrated for the lack of competitive football. It also took its toll on Ahli at the Club World Cup, unlike last year when we played for third place. The return of the league is the best way to get the national team back on the right track,” Gomaa told the Al Ahly official website.

Egypt sacked their American head coach Bob Bradley as a results of their inability to qualify for the World Cup in their sixth straight attempt with the legendary Muhamed Aboutreika also retiring from football.

    Sorry Gomaa, the truth is my fellow country men had terrible charms so u where playing with magicians/witches. Can’t u see we fall in Egypt and why we’re still trophyless? Too much juju here in Ghana, thats y iam opting 4 a new citizenship in Nigeria to stay far away from these urgly witches.

    Mr Gomaa, when Egypt was winning in the World Cup qualifying, beating Guinea, Malawi and Zimbabwe all round without defeat, there were no complaints coming from you. You thought you were the masters of all you survey. You thought you had no equals in Black Africa, and Ghana would be no match. The truth is you had no idea that Ghana is the most advance in African Soccer. Ghana still remains, by far, the best soccer nation in Africa whether Egypt have won 7 times in CAN or not. Ignorant people like you never learn. They keep making same mistakes over and over again because they refuse to accept the facts.

    When will this teams understand that Ghana plays a different game when it comes to WORLD CUP, they should go ask all the teams we have played during the world cup, plus Egypt only beat us in Cairo because we were being smart, LOOSE THE GAME AND GET OUT OF EGYPT SAFELY, UNDERSTAND? SAFELY, we gave them that game,

  6. ZG GH4LIFE says:

    Any team that meets us on any world cup field whether qualifying or final field will suffer before they beat us, ask Germany lol.
