Africa Cup of Nations: A troubled build-up

first_imgEgypt’s tourism ministry, however, denies that a special plan to attract tourists has been put into place for the tournament.“Egypt’s decision to organise the competition was only aimed at showing the world that the country was capable of doing so,” Maher said.Another Egyptian journalist, Mahmoud Diaa, from website Goal, said the tournament was a great opportunity for the country to improve the image of his country.“Unfortunately so far we haven’t seen any indication of this happening, except for the fact that the stadiums are being renovated,” he said.Salah, Mane, Mahrez – stars on showWhen the action does begin, Egypt’s Mohamed Salah and his Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane, who lines up for Senegal, are expected to lead the cast of Europe-based stars on show.African Player of the Year Salah and the host nation will be seeking to bounce back from their disastrous 2018 World Cup in Russia. The Pharaohs’ choice of a team base in Chechnya was disputed from the start and they failed to win a single point as Salah struggled, clearly still labouring with a shoulder injury he sustained in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.Mane, 27, has had a barnstorming season for Liverpool, driving the club to the top of the Premier League and scoring crucial goals in their charge to the Champions League quarter-finals.Senegal have a rugged side, also featuring Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, that narrowly failed to reach the World Cup knockout stage last year.Herve Renard’s Morocco, Tunisia, Nigeria and holders Cameroon are also among the top seeds for the draw. However, there are dangerous sides below them, such as Algeria, who can call on Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez and a host of other European-based players. Cameroon are champions but got into problems trying to host the event.Paris, France | AFP |  The draw for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations takes place in Cairo on Friday in a country that was only handed the task of organising the tournament in January.Egypt faces a race against time to be ready for the June 21 kick-off.Supposed to be in Cameroon…Egypt, seven-time winners of this competition, stood in for Cameroon after the central African country was deemed by African football’s governing body, CAF, to have fallen too far behind in its preparations.Not surprisingly, Egypt faces an uphill battle to be ready in time, especially as the format has been expanded from 16 teams to 24.The locations of the teams’ training camps, as well as the issue of visas for both the delegations and supporters from across the continent, will only be clarified “after the draw”, says Nathalie Rabe, head of communications for CAF.Signs of discord in EgyptOne expert with knowledge of the organising process told AFP that CAF recently “reprimanded” the Egyptian organising committee, accusing it of failing to coordinate its efforts and of making vague statements to the media.Rabe declined to discuss the reports of rows between CAF and the local organisers and insisted that preparations “are going well”.Egypt put forward a provisional list of 10 stadiums, of which six have been chosen to host games. Three are in Cairo, and stadiums in Alexandria, Suez and Ismailia round out the list.“The biggest worry now is the quality of the stadiums and the pitches… but they should be ready for the tournament,” Hatem Maher, a sports journalist for Ahram Online, told AFP.Boon for tourism?It was widely assumed that Egypt’s decision to host the tournament at such short notice was motivated by a desire to attract tourists back to the country.Visitor numbers to Egypt have dropped since the Arab Spring revolution of 2011 which led to the resignation from the presidency of Hosni Mubarak. There was also the 2015 bombing of a Russian airliner over the Sinai with the loss of 224 lives, and the country is mired in an economic crisis. Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Internationals tame the winds to set championship pace

first_img15 May 2017 Internationals tame the winds to set championship pace Internationals Aileen Greenfield and Lulu Housman set the pace on a windy first day at the English senior women’s amateur championship at South Staffordshire Golf Club. The conditions were testing, especially when combined with the slick greens, but the leaders fashioned impressive scores of two-over 75 as they set about the 36-hole process of qualifying for the match play stages.  “This is the sort of course where you have to think your way round,” said Greenfield, who was in England’s winning team at last year’s senior Home Internationals. She did that in style, with two matching halves of one-over par – thanks in part to a sure touch on the greens. “The greens are very undulating and the downhill, downwind putts are very difficult,” added Greenfield, from Pyecombe in Sussex (Image © Leaderboard Photography). She was followed in by Housman, whose score marked a return to championship form after a disappointing season last year when she missed out on a place in the England team. She played for the national side in 2015, after winning the English senior stroke play title, and her aim this week is to amass precious order of merit points to help her return to the team. Housman, from Wyke Green, Middlesex, has put in plenty of work with her coach and she remarked: “Today was a good start, but there’s a long way to go and I’ve got to keep my head screwed on!” The leaders are being chased by Suffolk’s Fiona Edmond (Ipswich), a former England women’s international who is making her debut in senior ranks and is one shot off the lead. Behind her is a group on five-over 78, made up of former champion Caroline Berry (Bromborough, Cheshire), Yorkshire’s Heather Staniforth (Hallamshire) and Devon’s Jo Shorrocks (Bigbury). The local challenge is led by South Staffordshire’s own Annette Deeley on 79, while past champion Julie Brown (Trentham) shares 12th place on eight-over. She’s in a group which includes defending champion Cath Rawthore (Sale, Cheshire) and 2015 winner Helen Lowe (Scraptoft, Leicestershire).  Shorrocks was a member of an England Golf working party which came up with a new format for this year’s tournament. It increases the championship match play flight to 32 players and introduces a second flight for the top 16 players aged over 60. “I think it’s gone down very well,” she remarked of the changes. The leading players in Flight Two – contesting the Ann Howard Trophy – are Carol Wild (Notts Ladies) and Jeannie O’Keeffe (Hankley Common, Surrey) who both shot 82 today. O’Keeffe, who putted well to initially set the target, commented: “My days of playing in the top flight are past and I’m very, very happy to have Flight Two and it’s lovely playing against my peers. It’s exciting and there’s a strong field.” Click here for full scoreslast_img read more
