Home team fans tried to invade the pitch and go against the Egyptian star
The end of the match between Senegal and Egypt, which dictated the elimination of Carlos Queiroz’s men of the 2022 World Cup, was marked by moments of tension. Some home team fans tried to force their way onto the pitch to get to Mohamed Salah, which meant the Egyptian star had to be escorted to the locker room. In an official statement, quoted by ‘Marca’, the Egyptian Federation has already reacted to what happened, condemning the attitude of Senegalese fans. “The Egyptian national team has been the victim of racism, with banners in the stands targeting players, particularly Mohamed Salah. In addition, Senegalese fans terrorized Egyptian players by throwing bottles and stones at them during the warm-up , in addition to attacking the team bus, resulting in broken glass and some injuries, which was documented with photos and video in the complaint.” Remember that in the first leg, Egypt won 1-0. This Tuesday, Senegal triumphed with the same result in regulation time and ended up winning on penalties (3-1).
