Egypt face hearing over Algeria incidents

BERNE - Egypt could be in trouble over incidents ahead of Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Algeria, FIFA said.

Egypt won the game 2-0 in Cairo to set up a play-off with the same opponents which Algeria won 1-0 in Khartoum on Wednesday.

"Disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the Egyptian Football Association," said FIFA in a statement on Thursday.

"According to the official reports received by FIFA, on November 12 there were incidents affecting the Algerian team on their way from the airport to the hotel."
