“The Egyptian team faced racism after offensive banners appeared in the stands at the stadium directed at players, in particular Mohamed Salah, the captain. All documented by photos and videos attached to the complaint “, said the Egyptian Federation in its statement posted on social networks.
Photos released by the Federation show the broken windows of the bus carrying the Pharaohs, banners of insults against Mohamed Salah and members of the public making abusive gestures at the players.
