Board of Saudi club Al-Nassr dissolved

JEDDAH: The head of Saudi Arabia’s top sports authority dissolved the board of Al-Nassr sports club on Monday, according to a statement from the body.
President of the General Sports Authority Turki Al-Asheikh decided that the Saudi Pro League (SPL) club’s board of directors will be replaced by an acting board headed by Salman bin Fahad Al-Malik.
The decision comes after a commission found a charge against Salman Al-Quraini, a member of the board, to be true and that the board was aware of the violations.
The new board of directors is expected to be formed in a week.
Al-Nassr is a Riyadh-based sports club founded in 1955.
The team, who are 3rd in the SPL, ended a lackluster run in December by beating title rivals Al-Ahli 3-1 on Friday in the Saudi capital.
The club was Saudi league champions for the 2013/14 season.

LIVE: Saudi Arabia vs Egypt

4PM: EL-HADARY SET TO MAKE HISTORY —  So the last matches of Group A have arrived and while hosts Russia will be battling it out with Uruguay to see who goes though as group winners, the Green Falcons and Egypt have little but pride to play for in Volgograd.

The big team news that has come out so far is that Hector Cuper has had a heart and will start Egypt goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary. That means El-Hadary will become the oldest player ever to appear at a World Cup. Aged 45 years, five months and 12 days he will smash the record currently held by Colombia goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon, who was aged 43 years and three days when he played against Japan in Brazil in 2014.

This may be a dead rubber, however, both sides will be keen to get a win. Saudi Arabia are looking for their first World Cup victory since 1994, while the Pharaohs are searching for their first win in the tournament ever.

Kick-off is at 5PM.
