A: Admiring Amazing Athletes

A is for Admiring Amazing Athletes

In honor of Egypt’s national football (soccer) team and their recent win in the Africa Cup of Nations, I thought I’d post some photos from the 2006 African Cup that was hosted by Egypt. The Pharaohs won that year, too. In fact, this  is their third consecutive win! The boys in this photo, though, are admiring athletes from other African nations. My husband and I attended a game between Ghana and Senegal, played in the Port Said Stadium.

Learn more about athletes in Egypt in my book and on my website.
