Egypts Zidan fined for leaving Pharaohs
The Egypt FA decided on Thursday to dock its pay to Egyptian forward Mohamed Zidan, who left Pharaohs' preparation camp without permission from Coach Bob Bradley.
''Zidan will not receive the bonus of Egypt's recent wins,'' read a statement on the EFA official website.
“Coach Bradley will have all authority to call up the player again or exclude him finally from the Pharaohs’ squad.”

Seven-time African champions Egypt will have to overturn a 3-2 first-leg deficit when they face Central Africa if they are to avoid missing out on the Nations Cup for the second time in a row.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
