        Soccer and Politics in Cairo | American Pharaoh: Chapter 2

        Meet Egyptian soccer fan Ahmed Rasheed who discusses his involvement in the Tahrir Square uprisings, the relationship that soccer fans had with former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, and the way soccer fandoms in Egypt can become politicized. Then, learn about the riot at a soccer game in Port Said during February 2012 that led to the death of 72 people and heightened political tensions in Egypt, forcing the National Team to play later games in empty stadiums. The team is able to defeat Mozambique as they continue on their quest to reach the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.
