FIFA expert says Egypt riot stadium is safe venue
Lausanne (Switzerland): An international football stadium expert has praised the Egyptian venue where at least 74 people were killed in a riot yesterday, and suggests the violence was planned.
Walter Gagg told a news agency that the Port Said stadium is "a good one" and "absolutely not" a danger for spectators.
Gagg, a FIFA official and Confederation of African Football adviser, previously inspected the Port Said stadium that has hosted matches at the 2006 African Cup of Nations and the Under-20 World Cup in 2009.
Gagg suggests "there was premeditation for what happened" on Friday, adding that football authorities "can`t avoid a problem" if violence is organised around a match
