Shehata no longer coach of Egypt
The Egyptian Football Association says it has parted company
with coach Hassan Shehata, a day after a shock 0-0 draw against
South Africa all but ended any chance of defending its African Cup
of Nations title.
Traditionally one of the continent’s top sides, Egypt has won
the African Cup of Nations seven times.
But in recent months, it has struggled to score goals and faces
the real prospect of failing to qualify for the African tournament
for the first time in 33 years.
