to unite Egypt


Mamdouh Abbas http://www.broncosfootballprosshop.com/Jake_Butt_Jersey_Cheap wants to set the record straight. A wealthy businessman who has built a vast real estate and petroleum empire is these days better known in Egypt as the man who refused to sign Mohamed Salah in 2011, when chairman of Eric Hosmer Womens Jersey Zamalek – one of the country’s leading teams. “Salah needs much Nelson Cruz Womens Jersey more work,” he said in a televised interview that year. But contrary to what his successor at the club (and apparent arch nemesis) says, a separate committee took the decision at the time. “I am not responsible,” insists Abbas.

Speaking the day after http://www.officialramsfootballshop.com/YOUTH+ETHAN+WESTBROOKS+JERSEY Salah became the first Egyptian to be named Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year, it is not surprising that Abbas feels sensitive over the claim that he missed Salah’s potential. It must feel as if he is defending himself not only to ardent football fans but also to an entire nation that dotes on their “Egyptian King”.

Egypt’s reaction to the shoulder injury Salah sustained in last month’s Champions League final following a challenge from Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos, and which in the immediate aftermath made him a doubt for the World Cup, showed how he is revered in the country. It was summed up by a headline in the al-Masry al-Youm newspaper the next day: “The night Egyptians cried: Ramos the butcher dislocated Abu Salah’s shoulder.”
Egyptians cursed Ramos on social media and the Arabic hashtags “Ramos the Dog” and “Son of a [Censored]” were soon trending on Egyptian Twitter after Salah left the pitch in tears at Kiev’s Olympic Stadium. An Egyptian lawyer has filed a lawsuit against Ramos, equivalent to £874m, for causing Egyptians “physical and psychological harm”.
For his fellow countrymen, Salah’s magic has transcended Authentic Keanu Neal Jersey the pitch. He represents a rare figure behind whom all Egyptians, regardless of class or politics, can unite, an astonishing feat given the years of political and economic turmoil that have followed the uprising of 2011 that toppled the longtime president Hosni Mubarak.
“Mohamed Salah is really important because he is a symbol … like Tutankhamun, like the pyramids,” said Mohamed Farag Amer, head of Egypt’s parliamentary youth and sports committee. On the 25-year-old being compared to Ken Griffey Jersey Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the Cairo-based sports journalist Hatem Maher says: “This is unprecedented for any Egyptian football player at any point in history.”
Egypt kick off their first World Cup for 28 years against Uruguay on Friday and Salah seems certain to start even though doubts remain over whether he has fully recovered. It will be a huge shame if he has not, and not only because of the forward’s talents. It was Salah who sent Egypt to Russia by scoring twice in their dramatic 2-1 victory over Congo in October. Egyptians poured on to Tahrir Square in central Cairo – the centre of the popular protests against Mubarak – after the match to celebrate, waving flags and blowing horns. Some observers noted that the rapturous scenes on the square were reminiscent of the heady days of the revolution.
“I think our qualification for the World Cup was the only moment all Egyptians were happy since the uprising … [it] was a moment people craved for so long,” said Maher.
The fall of Mubarak in 2011, at the height of the Arab Spring, gave momentary http://www.authenticflyerstore.com/authentic-19-nolan-patrick-jersey.html hope to a nation that had been in the grip of his dictatorship for almost 30 years. But the transition to democracy proved turbulent and collapsed when the country’s polarising first democratically elected president, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi, was overthrown by the military with popular support in 2013. Egypt has since been under the iron fist of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, the former head of the armed forces, who has ushered in the most severe clampdown on dissent in the country’s contemporary history. cheap jerseys free shipping cheap jerseys china wholesale jerseys from china wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys
