Egypt face charges after World Cup violence

Johannesburg–Egypt will go before a disciplinary hearing in Zurich on Thursday after an attack on the Algerian team bus before a World Cup qualifier last November.

FIFA said on Wednesday the Egypt Football Association will face charges over incidents which marred their dramatic 2-0 win over their north African rivals in their Cairo clash.

Algeria’s team bus was stoned and several players had to be treated for cuts. Algeria has also qualified for this year’s World Cup in South Africa.
