Egypt sack coach after draw with Gabon


The Egypt Football Association (EFA) have fired coach Hossam El Badry following Sunday’s World Cup qualifying draw against Gabon.

The Pharaohs rescued a 1-1 draw when equalising in the last minute, in a match where Omar Gaber saw red after 71 minutes.

El Badry has been dismissed despite not losing one of his ten games in charge, winning six and drawing four.

The North Africans are also top of Group F with four points but Libya can move two points above them if they beat Angola on Tuesday.

“The EFA would like to thank Hossam El-Badry and his technical staff for the work they have done for the national team,” said the association.

“We wish them good luck and fortune in their future career. And the EFA will decide the new technical staff for the national team during the next 48 hours.”
