Former Coach of Cairo’s Zamalek FC Abdrahim Mohammed Negma who gave the play-by-play account of the Egypt-Saudi Arabia FIFA World Cup match died after the Egyptian national team lost 1-2, Gazeta.ru reported, citing Youm7.

Negma worked for one of Egypt’s TV channels. During the match, he suffered a heart attack and was subsequently rushed to the hospital where he died.

Egypt’s encounter with Saudi Arabia ended in a 1-2 defeat. The Egyptians opened the score in the middle of the first half, but the Saudis netted an equalizer in the 45th minute and secured their win in the fifth added minute to the second half of the game.

The Egyptian team lost all the three group stage matches at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and their chances to get into the tournament’s knockout stage.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
