The Egyptian football team beat Ghana in the African Cup of Nations’ final match, and achieved its third consecutive championship. This is also Egypt's seventh championship since the launch of the tournament in the 50's. Bloggers join the rest of the country in celebrating the achievement.
Zeinobia wrote here about the Egyptian victory saying:
The victory wasn't only celebrated here in Egypt. In Qatar, Qatar Living wrote here about the victory, and the expected sleepless night in Doha:
Mod Note : It's going to be a noisy night in Doha! Congratulations to all the Egyptians in Qatar!
An Egyptian blogger living in USA, Egyptian Wish, wrote a new post here saying:
Congratulations for CAN2010!
Also in Palestine, Hamas didn't miss the opportunity, and congratulated the Egyptians on their seventh Championship. Kelmety wrote about it here:
Zeinobia wrote another post here, about the Egyptian president's sons, who went to Angola to support the Egyptian football team:
Another blogger, My Oblivia, had a different point of view here:
In this country people die of hunger, they die of torture, they simply die because they don’t have half the basic humane standards of living and medical attention, let alone awareness…
So God did not want us to win our daily battles of mere survival, instead, He destined us for winning a soccer game, and entire tournament, hallelujah, we’re saved!
So, this is our destined victory, in soccer…
And now, all out other problems are solved and we are eternally blessed!
And finally, the Egyptian national team usually adds a new star on their jersey every time they win the African Cup of Nations. But Adel Ghaly was wondering here if we have any place left for an extra star:
ولكن وجدت مشكلة عويصة ستقابل المنتخب بعد هذا الفوز وهى ان المنتخب الان اصبح يمتلك 7 نجوم يرمزون الى 7 بطولات افريقية أين سيضع كل هذة النجوم على فانلة المنتخب المليئة بالنجوم ؟!
