The authorities, they have hurried to say that the confrontations among the swollen of the teams Al-Masry and Al-Ahly, they got involved after the party, leaving to their step several hundreds of wounded.

The one whistled, of the referee, as final of party, is as if has been the explosive for so much violence. And the escusa is that the team, Al-Masry, it inflicted the first defeat of the season, of the current champion to Al-Ahly.

I have seen in diverse television channels and chains informative images, of the soccer field and it was, and they shrink the heart. Images, those of the fans are among other, of the Al-Masry, pursuing players of the Al-Ahly, in the field.

But it is that later, it passed something similar, although fortunately, of soaked minor, in the field of soccer of Cairo, because the referee of I cancel an encounter among the teams of 'Zamalek and Ismaili', for the events of Port Said. Here there was a fire.
