Mario Basler criticized Hany Ramzy
Egypt's star defender Hany Ramzy was heavily attacked before and after his game against Hansa Rostock.
Before the game Hansa Rostock supporters whistled at the Egyptian every time he touched the ball, and after his sending off, Kaiserslautern's midfielder criticized the player too. However Kaiserslautern's coach Andy Brehme defended Ramzy all the way.
Basler unhappy with Ramzy and his teammates:
Kaiserslautern midfielder Mario Basler accused his teammates of not trying as their title challenge faltered following Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Hansa Rostock. "If we play like this, we will not become German champions," he said.
"If you lose a game like this, without even picking up at least a point, you cannot be surprised when the title race is going on without you."
Basler singled out Egypt defender Hany Ramzy, recently restored to the side after he was sacked following a sexual harassment case went against him, for criticism. Ramzy was sent off after just half an hour for picking up two yellow cards. "This is something that should not happen to an experienced player like him," Basler added.
Brehme supported Ramzy and defended him:
Kaiserslautern coach Andy Brehme was less dramatic. He said: "Usually, Hany is a fair and clever player. It seems that he can't get the [harassment] affair out of his mind."
Negative attitude from Rostock fans towards Ramzy:
Rostock fans whistled at the Egyptian every time he touched the ball, and some fans displayed a banner which read: 'Ramzy, go to jail!'

The game played at the Amsterdam ArenA in front of large crowd of Ajax supporters.
Ajax played with their regular 4-4-3 formation with three men at front, Van der Meyde in the right wing, Greek striker Nikos Machlas as lone striker and Brazilian Wamberto as left winger. Mido and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were on bench.
The game was totally one sided as De Graafschap (former club of Hazem Emam) were of no match to Amsterdam giants Ajax.
Greek striker Nikos Machlas had most of the chances, but he was terribly out of his form and wasted enormous number of chances throughout the game.
First dangerous ball for Ajax came when Machlas fall into the area in a trial to get a penalty kick. The referee waived play on though.
Wamberto had a chance later when his shot hit the bar. Ajax had another real chance for Van Haalst who tried to chip the ball over the keeper from long range, but his ball went inches wide of the post.
Ajax's first goal came in the 30th min. of the first half when Tunisian right defender Hatem Trabelsi made a superb cross from the right wing to Pinaar who headed it beautifully into the net making it 1-0 for Ajax.
Machlas wasted two real chances for Ajax before the end of the first half, and the referee showed him the yellow card after his fight with one of De Graafschap's defenders.
Ajax scored their 2nd in the beginning of the 2nd half, particularly in the 46th min. when De Graafschap's defender Bakens tried to clear the ball but it went right into his own net.
Machlas wasted a couple of chances after the 2nd goal of Ajax. Dutch coach Ronald Koeman decided finally to withdraw the player from the pitch and give MIDO the chance to play as a striker instead of him.
Mido's goal story:
Wamberto made a nice dribble outside De Graafschap's penalty area and made a splendid shot at the goal. De Graafschap's keeper parried it at the expense of a right wing corner. The cross was made high into the area to Mido who moved superbly to meet the ball with his head, and placed it into the right corner making it 3-0 for Ajax in the 62nd min.
After the goal, Mido ran a long way to the substitution bench and shook hands with his coach Ronald Koeman. It seemed like Mido wanted to prove to his coach that he is the right man for the striker position.
Mido's assist resulted in 4th goal:
In the last minute of the game, Wamberto played the ball to MIDO in the area, Mido played it superbly in a one-two style to the advancing Wamberto in front of goal, the Brazilian played it calmly into the net making it 4-0 to Ajax
Masry Succeeds in its First African Test
Cairo - Monday 11/03/2002
Masry started successfully its first step in the African Cup with a 2-0 home victory against Kenyan Mathare United. The victory is not a sure sign of Masry’s qualification, but chances are high. Masry performed well only in the first half, and dominated the game and by scoring two goals. Ahmed Koshary scored the first goal, in the 24th minute, from a free kick in the area, after the referee had judged for a foul against the keeper for 6 seconds rule.
Even after the goal, Masry continued to attack and they were rewarded in the 38th minute through young striker, Moustafa Gaafar. Masry slowed down the rhythm of the game in the second half, and hardly attacked but they soon realized that they are encouraging the visitors so they pushed forward again. But unfortunately, they could not score and the score did not change.
