SOT, Mohamed Ahmed, Fan (Arabic): "The decision to exclude Amr Warda from the team was not in his time, and should not be the day of the match. No one confirmed the video that spread to him, old or new, and the situation does not need to noise before the day of the match."

SOT, Abdelrahman Gamal, Fan (Arabic): "Sure that will affect the number of players in the team, but if the player is not committed he should have been excluded from the beginning."

SCRIPT
Egypt supporters were out in full force in Cairo on Wednesday for their group game against DR Congo in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Dressed in the country's emblematic red, fans were seen chanting and waving flags on their way to the stadium.
Some Egypt supporters also commented on the controversy surrounding midfielder Amr Warda after he was expelled from Egypt's squad following allegations that he sexually harassed a number of women online.
Tournament hosts Egypt could qualify for the last 16 if they win. The Pharoahs kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 win over Zimbabwe last Friday.
