Following the incidents that occurred yesterday in Cairo after the arrival of the official delegation of the Algerian national team, FIFA's Organising Committee for the FIFA World Cup™ have asked the Egyptian Football Association and the highest national authorities through the relevant ministries to provide written guarantees that confirm the implementation of the necessary additional safety and security measures at any time for the Algerian delegation.

Last week, FIFA had officially written to the Football Associations of Algeria and Egypt to express its firm wish that the preliminary competition for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ ends as it began, in the spirit of fair play with the necessary cooperation of all the parties.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup preliminary competition game Egypt-Algeria is scheduled on Saturday, 14 November 2009, at 19:30 local time, at Cairo International Stadium.
