Egypt kick started their World Cup Qualification of Group F with a win against Angola, they locked horns with Angola on Wednesday evening, 1 September at the June Air Stadium.
Egypt got their winning goal against Angola through a penalty from Mohammed Magdy, which resulted in the head coach of Egypt Hossam El Bandry being disappointed with his side performance.
The Egyptians played their second match of the campaign against Gabon on Sunday evening at the Stade de Franceville Stadium, Gabon. The match didn’t really start on a high note as both teams lacked creativity upfront. Gabon found the back of the net through Jim Allevinah on the 73rd minute and Egypt levelled matters through Mostafa Mohammed on the stroke of full-time. The match ended in a 1-1 draw which didn’t satisfy the Egyptian Football Association.
The team’s current performance has been questioned by many following a draw against Gabon, the EFA then decided to sack Hossam El Bandry and his staff from their positions. The dismissal came through an EFA official social media post which reads as follows “The Egyptian Football Association would like to thank Hossam El Bandry and his technical team for the work they have done for the national team, we wish them good luck and fortune in their future career.’’
The EFA has further decided to reveal their new technical staff in the next 48 hours.
