Great pictures&vid! Good to see that Michal Novotny's there, taking care of the Latvian team. Were Ernests's warm grey undies his idea?
And about being used to such events. Unfortunately, 'wars of nerves' between a player and the audience are not a rare thing. People strolling during the match? Ernests could treat it like a warm-up before the US tournaments (spectators wise)
Anyway, I think it's big that Egypt faced the challenge and organized this tie. It surely wasn't easy for a country that's going through a lot lately.
