Egypt players attacked with lasers by Senegal fans during World Cup qualifier


The qualification of the Senegal national team for the Qatar 2022 World Cup was not free of controversy, after throughout the match against Egypt the local fans were attacked with lasers, which were particularly aimed at the faces of the players.

Players such as Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, goalkeeper Mohammed El Shenawy, Aston Villa’s Trezeguet, and his teammates have all been hit with lashes aimed at the faces of many Senegalese fans who have come to the stadium in Dakar.

The match was a repeat of the same match between the two teams last February, when Senegal defeated The Pharaohs in the Africa Cup of Nations final in a penalty shoot-out, with Sadio Mané scoring a goal, which happened again when the Reds midfielder scored the equalizer. his team at the World Cup.

Lasers first appeared on the players’ faces when the teams were lined up to play national anthems, and blue lights appeared in the eyes of Salah, who preferred not to hear the news.

The referee did nothing in the face of the laser attacks against Egypt

The actions of some fans in Dakar have been repeated throughout the game, especially when the ball came out of the stadium and the Egyptian players were standing and breathing.

Despite the fact that a few Egyptian players were hit by a laser, the match referee did nothing, even though goalkeeper El Shenawy was about to defend Senegal’s free kick and was spotted with multiple lasers in his face trying to discourage him.

  1. FIFA must address the laser issue, and referees must be given instructions on how to react to laser intimidation during game play. Matches should be immediately suspended, and a PA announcement made to instruct fans to desist. if fans continue to ignore fair play, the match should be abandoned. Fans can be made to exit the stadium and then resume play with no fans. Senegal should not be permitted to benefit from this intrusion.

    1. Hey Stephen Grimes, you should go tell that to Egyptians fans first; Senegalese fans have just paid back to the treatment the Senegalese players received in Egypt. I think the proofs are still there, please go check the first leg.

    2. This Senegalese team suffered the same treatment or worse during the first leg. Egyptian fans were abusing Sadio Mane and his teammates from the time they arrived at the airport and throughout the game. Lasers were being pointed at their faces. Did the Egyptian intervene to stop the abuses? Hell no!
