Today I went to see Egypt play against Ivory Coast in the African cup of nations. Egypt won 3-1 after a spectacular game.
The stadium experience was a thrill. Wow, nothing like watching a game of soccer in a stadium with over 70,000 people cheering like crazy.
I am so glad Egypt won. We still have to wait for tomorrow's match between Cameroon and Congo to know whom we'll play against in the quarterfinals. I hope we meet Congo and not Cameroon.
To all fellow Egyptians: MABROUK (congrats) and Hossam Hassan is still the man!!!
Going up the stadium. Rushing to get a seat.
Waiting for the lights and the teams.
